The Country Maiden Chemise Top is a lovely medieval-styled chemise. It is made from 100% light-weight Muslin cotton, making it very comfortable. It is designed to be worn under any womans gown, bodice, or blouse, just like a medieval shift would be. This double-layered chemise features a ruffled, decorative neckline. The mid-length sleeves are loose-fitted to the elbow, where they are gathered via ribbon. The edges of the sleeves are decoratively flared. Being made from breathable Muslin fabric, this chemise is also slightly transparent. This chemise is also waist-length, making it much more appropriate for use with bodices, although it can still be worn with dresses and gowns as well. In antiquity, the chemise was worn to absorb the bodies soils while leaving less wear and tear on the outer garment. The chemise was typically the most-washed garment of its age. Today, the chemise performs a task that is fairly similar. If you are in-need of an additional under-layer to go with a gown or dress, or if you just need a light, simple garment to wear under your bodice, then the Country Maiden Chemise Top is the garment for you.
