The shift is an 18th century under garment worn by women. This was the first layer of clothing that a women would put on before putting on their stays, jackets, or gowns. The shift also served as sleeping wear at night, hence the phrase "Nightgown". The purpose of the shift was to protect their outer clothing from body oils, perspiration from soiling and staining their garments. We make our shifts out of 100% cotton, without a ruffle. The shift comes in these sizes Small (6 - 8) Med. (10 - 12) Large ( 14 - 16) Larger sizes are available. Keep this in mind, it sure is nice to have a fresh clean shift to put on after a long hot day in camp or at home.
