An antique French man's chemise or nightshirt made from hand loomed hemp or linen

This shirt probably dates back to the 1800s or early 1900s and is the tradtional long chemise or nightshirt shape. It would be ideal for gardeners, artists etc.

This one has clearly had a lot of use in its life and sections of it have been carefully replaced with heavy white cotton. The collar has been replaced, a section on the back, both cuffs and a section on each sleeve. Although this was an everyday item of apparel it was obviously valued enough to warrant repair. It has some faint rust marks which I have not treated and which will probably fade with laundering. The price reflects the repairs. It is still a beautiful item, charged with history.

It is free fitting, measuring over 45 inches (116cm) around the bust area (when measured under the arms) and it is 39inches long (89cm) from the shoulder to the hem

If you wish to make multiple purchases I am happy to combine shipping, please convo me for an accurate price.
