Black 18thC Linen Shirt

Black 18thC Linen Shirt

PLEASE NOTE THE CUT OFF TO ORDER THESE IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS HAS BEEN AND GONE (12/11/2020) ANY ORDERS AFTER THIS DATE WILL NOT ARRIVE IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS.

 

Going out for Halloween this year? Nor me. Here's the Vampiric shirt for your every day wardrobe. 

 

Made entirely from deadstock linen, as usual these shirts will be made to order. 

This shirt is directly inspired by my penchant for historical clothes, and passion for Halloween costumes. Using the same shape as the Linen shirt from the Summer Collection, this is the billowey statement shirt we've all been waiting for, for the winter months. Layered or on it's own, it is a barely updated version of a traditional 18th/19thC mens shirts (when weren't they wearing these tbh).

This shirt comes with lace ribbon sewn into it tie it up the neck and cuffs, but if a recycled plain satin ribbon is more your style, please don't hesitate to add it in the notes of your order with the size. 

 

These garments are made to order so please allow about a month for them to arrive. This is due to COVID delays and me being a one woman band. Made to order is a far more sustainable way to make new clothes as it means I am not making surplus that could end up un-sold!

  • Rather than using a traditional sizing chart for these, the shape of it lends to fitting ANY SIZE! I've always wanted to have garments I can easily adust to any body shape or size and here it is! Add the following details to the custom sizing measurement box by simply measuring:

    The Length you want it to be on your body, starting at your shoulder and ending at the hem. This could be dress, shirt, or even crop length. 

    The Width you want it to be, the sky is the limit as it is really just made from a glorified square. 

    Sleeve Length from shoulder to wrist. 

    Neck circumference The whole circumference of your neck (I don't like mine too tight so I added some inches onto this .. it's not a choker (unless you want it to be))

    Wrist circumference The same as for your neck. Maybe you want this to be able to tie up super tight or maybe you don't. Totally up to you.

    For reference I am 5'6 and a UK size 8 and mine is 28" from shoulder to hem, and 23" wide, and I made it to be able to be one of my usual risque dresses, but can absolutely be tucked in as a shirt. 

    Any further questions please don't hesitate to ask!
