Like Milady's Chemise, this is that little bit of something betwixt you and scandal. Save your dignity when the wind blows, or you're thrown from your horse while fleeing pursuit. Climb the main mast or scale the castle wall without fear of impertinent remarks from below.
Drawstrings at knee and waist adjust them for perfect comfort; extra room in the hips means they never bind. Three fluttery inches of lace at the knee is a web to snare unwary hearts. And pockets! Yes, we said POCKETS!
Muslin; white only. Solid colors and prints available seasonally; contact us to see what is currently on hand.
Sizes listed below are waist and inseam respectively.
Your size will be the smallest that will accommodate your hips (the waist has to be pulled on over the hips, since there is no opening at the waist). The actual hip size will be several inches fuller. The inseam is from the top of the inside leg seam to the drawstring below the knee. The frill below the drawstring is approximately 3.5" long, including the lace. Contact us if you need the measurements adjusted.
