“Townswoman” Cotton Chemise
Batiste underdress with loose sleeves
Our “Townswoman” Collection includes feminine, simple medieval clothing, and accessories that are versatile and easy to work into any costume. With some of it loosely inspired by the 13th, 14th, and 15th centuries, it all fits very well into the “generic” medieval category and can be dressed up and down to suit a ton of different looks. This chemise is meant to go with our short sleeve “Townswoman” dress but would look great with any of our ArmStreet dresses.
A chemise is a vital part of any costume. Not only does it add another layer that makes your costume look better, but it also serves the function of absorbing sweat and protecting your outer clothes. This particular chemise is long, features a scooped neckline and wide sleeves. It is bell-shaped and voluminous with lots of wonderful fabric, which is gathered along the neckline to help the fabric flow nicely. The sleeves are gathered at the wrist with a drawstring.
This chemise is made from a fine cotton batiste, which is thin and soft which makes it a lovely fabric to have against your skin. It’s an ideal base layer and drapes very well which makes the gathering around the neckline look wonderful. The dress has been crafted by our talented seamstresses who have decades of experience, so you’ll find well-finished seams and tidy tailoring throughout the garment.
There is no particular historical inspiration for this chemise, but it would look great with basically any medieval dress.
