Shifts did not change greatly between the years and I find it comforting that I could use a garment for more than one era.
My shift (and Chemises) are made out of 100% cotton, but in colonial/regency America, shifts were primarily linen.

So I began, with the extra fabric, to make him undies too! My guy is a big boy but he loves BIG too! Unfortunately his measurements exceed all of my patterns. Humph! Well, Ill make the clothes anyways. He can always grown into them.
Im excited to bring him along! And not to mention, making his outfit!
