Be your own Georgiana Lambe in a perfectly tailored, high-quality, historically accurate Regency era shirtwaist. Whether you are an attendee at an event, a historical reenactor, an actress in theatre, or an avid admirer of Jane Austen's works, this morning attire will make you feel like the wealthy heroine in Austen's last unfinished work!

White shirtwaists, worn under colorful petticoats, are frequently seen in period artwork and fashion plates.  The design for this shirtwaist is based off extant gowns and fashion plates. 

When you purchase a made-to-order item, you get the shirtwaist of your dreams by choosing the fabric from the drop-down options, providing measurements for a custom fit, and even purchasing extra available add-ons! (Search the website for “add-ons” to see what’s available!)  Please note that trims such as lace, braid, etc. will vary slightly depending on stock available. Contact us through the “Custom Orders” page if you would like to discuss additional fabric and customization options that are not available on this listing.

As a custom piece, this item is professionally handmade at my Texas (USA) studio and order fulfillment takes 10-12 weeks. Please see the website header for a current estimate on the month your order will be shipped to you. Shipping within the U.S. is FREE for all orders over $50.

ALL THE DETAILS

This shirtwaist is made to order in standardized sizing - choose the size that you currently wear in contemporary sizing and choose the fabric from the fabric choices. Within 48 hours of receiving your order, I will send you a measurement worksheet listing the measurements required for a perfect fit. 

    The shirtwaist includes:

    • 100% cotton lawn fabric
    • "shirt" collar
    • gathers in the neckline at front and back center
    • a front opening that ties shut with a drawstring
    • long sleeves with a cuff closure at the wrist
    • underarm gussets
    • eyelet trim on the sleeve cuff

    To achieve the correct historical silhouette, this shirtwaist is pictured over a chemise, stays, and petticoat, but no chemise, stays, or petticoat are included with this listing. These garments are made to fit over stays and will not fit correctly over modern undergarments. However, if you would like your commissioned ensemble to fit over modern undergarments, please send a message, and I will be happy to oblige!

    ***This listing does NOT include the colorful petticoat.  To get both the shirtwaist and the petticoat, order Miss Lambe's Morning Ensemble***

    Measure your bust and waist and choose your size based on the pictured sizing guidelines. For the most accurate fit, please take the measurements while wearing your stays and other undergarments (i.e. chemise, petticoat, etc).

    HOW TO MEASURE YOURSELF

    Please refer to the measurement graphic in the listing and the video tutorial if you need assistance in understanding and taking your measurements. If you still have additional questions, please feel free to message me.

    CARE INSTRUCTIONS

    A care card will be included with your order, but if you choose a silk or wool fabric, it will be dry clean only.  Most dresses made with cotton, linen, or polyester fabrics can be washed.

    All fabrics are preshrunk, usually by prewashing.  Seller is not responsible for any allergic reactions to the detergent used in prewashing.

    Items with buttons will arrive with an extra button sewn inside.
