Product Description

The shift’s shape changed somewhat towards the end of the 1700s, with shorter, narrow sleeves replacing earlier elbow-length gathered ones. This one is transitional, with narrow sleeves not yet as short as they became around 1800. It is also lacking the gusset insets at the hem, instead the trapeziodal shape is cut in one. Both front and back are pieced in different places to conserve fabric. It also has a seam at the shoulder and no shoulder straps.



This shift has enough room for comfort and is adjustable at the neck with a drawstring. It is gracious over the hips.



The original fabric is a white linen. There is cross stitch embroidery at center front. Image to the left.



When deciding which size is correct for you to use, measure your your bust.  Pattern includes sizes 8 to 18.
