This listing is for a white cotton Regency shift or chemise. Though is shifts of this style were worn for century's prior to the regency period and continued to be worn into the early victorian era, so is a great addition to any re-enactors wardrobe.

The shift would be the first item of clothing put on before the addition of your stays. A petticoat would follow and finally your gown. The shift would give a comfortable layer under the stiffened stays or corset and protect the these and the gown from perspiration.

The cut is authentic to the period and replicates many in my own collection of antique costume.
Lovely and roomy with gussets under the arms to allow for moving about. The drawstring neckline fastens with a narrow satin ribbon through a cotton bound edge meaning you can adjust it to suit all necklines of gown. The seams are all flat felled so there are no nasty raw edges.

The measurements -
Chest - 46"
Waist - 52"
Shoulder to hem - 35 1/2"
Upper arm - 13 1/4"

I can make this listing up to measure so feel free to convo me if you would like me to make up another size for you. Please convo me with details and allow up to 2 weeks to make up.

The gown in the last photo is dated 1807.
