||I first posted the basic info about my version of an Italian chemise in my Florentine dress diary, but at the time, I talked more about my sources and changes I made to the pattern instead of tips about how to make one for yourself. So in the hopes of being more useful, I decided to go back and do a step-by-step guide in case you are interested in making your own chemise. There are at least two other good sources out there that are all based on the same 17th century Italian chemise found in the book, Cut My Cote. Kass McGann wrote the original online article, A Reconstructed Chemise, which inspired my attempt, and then Bella Lucia da Verona has also written a very in-depth look at the Italian camicia which you can find here. Both of these are excellent, but I tried to simplify the pattern while still keeping the same shape.
