Handmade Linen Shift

Medieval underwear!

When I decided to make my medieval wool kirtle, I needed a shift to go with it. I ended up wearing it with all of my medieval garb. It is completely hand sewn, hemmed and felled with waxed linen thread and made from pure linen. The neckline is very wide and low to go with my wool kirtle and my red linen dress. I recently added a drawstring to be able to change the neckline depending on the dress.
