This is a full chemise, with a wide neckline for tucking into a bodice or showing the shoulders. Available with either a ribbon tie (very pretty) or elastic (quick convenience!) at the neck line, and elastic or 1 inch cuffs that close with buttons or ribbon.
While the chemise can be made from broadcloth or muslin, it looks best when made from batiste. If you select batiste, the cuffs will be made from matching broadcloth for stability and strength. One length (to 12 inches below the waist) only.
The chemise in the photos is shown with elastic at neck with 1" button cuffs.
If you would like to dye your own chemise to match your costume, we've added a new option: 100% Cotton White (RTD). If you select this option, please tell us in the order notes what color you plan to shoot for, and we'll make the chemise with the appropriately colored thread. We use and recommend Procion dyes from Dharma Trading Company.
RTD: means "ready to dye", meaning the fabric has been washed to remove all sizing and oils that might inhibit the dye process.
