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.
