SKU: MCI-231 Categories: ,

The Italian Renaissance Short Chemise is a beautifully styled chemise. It is made from high-quality satin, making it quite comfortable. It is designed to be worn under any womans gown, bodice, or skirt, just like a medieval shift would be. This chemise features white ruffles on the collar as well as a button-up neckline. The full-length sleeves are loose-fitted, except at the wrist where they are gathered into a cuff. 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 Italian Renaissance Short Chemise is the garment for you.
