Antique chemise would have originally been the bottom layer of many under garments for a lady, worn beneath the corset. The chemise is gathered to the front and back neckline. The neck and armholes are trimmed with gathered eyelet or broderie anglaise lace and there is a front neck opening to beneath the bust, which closes with one porcelain button.  The chemise is knee length and would make a delightful summer dress - add your own belt. White cotton - it's a handmade garment. 

Measurements

Small

  • Bust area is quite full but the garment is small around the shoulders and armholes
  • Best fit bust 81-86 cm (32-34")
  • Armholes 45.5 cm (18")
  • Length 95 cm (37.5")

Condition

Very good. Some streakiness in the color may be seen in some lighting - white to cream. A former owner has opened the seam a little beneath the armholes to allow for a larger fit, see photo.
