Another foundation garments is the chemise, a loose shirt dress which is worn under the corset. Again, this is not strictly neede for WGT, but I have read so many blogs focused on historical sewing and they all mention that you can never achieve the correct silhouette without the correct underwear. So I was curious to try it!
Again, I used plain thin black cotton and a pattern from Marquise. I omitted the sleeves because I will potentially wear it under Tailles without sleeves as well. It was rather easy to put together, and looks pretty sweet if I might say so!
It is fun to wear, but I kind of wonder how the women faired in summer with all those layers!
