Modified chemise

We recently completed several garments for an upcoming short film for a production company in New York City. We altered our existing chemise pattern to create this long, flowing undergarment.

The full length full sleeves have ties a the cuff. Ties around around the neckline allow the wearer to adjust fullness. The front also features a button front opening and extra deep neckline. It is cut extra slim to avoid bulkiness. The production company also requested they be hemmed to floor length.

About Susan

Hi! My name is Susan and I am a historian, seamstress, teacher, mother, and wife. My passion for history has manifested itself in the art of recreating clothing from different periods of time. Growing up in the American South, I am heavily schooled in the art of recreating clothing from the 19th century. After nearly a decade of immersing myself primarily in the Victorian period, I found the need to branch out and explore other periods of time. However, it is my connection with the American South and the clothing of rural America that continues to be the driving force behind my designs.
