Celtic Wench / Merchant Chemise


This is an essential historical garment, worn by just about every woman regardless of her station or class level. Our version has a small ruffle along the neckline and cuffs. Featured on this chemise is a line of Celtic knotwork embroidery along the cuff edge or down the sleeve. It adds a delicate touch to this basic garment. This chemise can be worn on or off the shoulder. 

  • Available in white, off white or black fabric with your choice of embroidery colors. Other fabric colors may be ordered by Special Order.
  • Elastic wrist and neckline is standard, but drawstrings are available as an alternative. Our quality level is indicated by the fact that we encase our elastic with fabric - we do NOT stitch the exposed elastic directly onto the fabric.
  • Full length version is available for an additional $15. The full length version is a perfect compliment for under our Froca or for added layers under skirts. Historically, full length chemises also doubled as nightgowns.
  • Shown here with our Tartan Circle Skirt and Celtic Bodice, linked below.
  • Our garments are not massed produced.  Each one is hand made to your specifications here in the USA and our quality takes time.  This means it will take 4 to 6 weeks to get your order to you.  July through November orders may run over 8 weeks due to our show schedule.   Occasionally we can manage rush orders or may have items in stock, please contact us before ordering.  Thank you for taking this into consideration when placing your order.
