A shift, shirt, or chemise is the one thing a person cannot be without when portraying an historical person. They were worn as the layer of clothing closest to the skin, there to protect outer garments from the body.
"Hand Sewn" indicates an item that is made with the most historically accurate methods possible. "Hand Finished" looks entirely correct on the outside, but contains modern interior seam finishes.
This garment features very full, overly long sleeves that are gathered into a slim cuff with optional ruffle
Fabric: linen or cotton
Thread: linen (+ cotton if hand finished)
