Made from natural rough spun 100% cotton. This chemise is not see-through and can be used with or without an apron dress. Elisa has a round neckine.
The term chemise (Norse: Serkr) is used, in historical contexts, to describe an everyday underdress and sleeping garment from the Viking age up to the early 1900s. A chemise could be sewn the same way as an overdress, with added fabric in the sides and under the arms for width and range of motion. A chemise could also be sleeveless, with the skirt and bodice in one piece and bands or straps over the shoulders.
The chemise was originally made from linen, hemp, or wool, and later cotton.
This chemise is a copy of a find from Hedeby. The hem falls to the instep and has one gore on each side. The dress will shrink a little in length after the first wash.
