Linen/Cotton Shift

A shift is the most basic undergarment needed for an 18th century woman. This shift is made of a linen and cotton blend so it is breathable as well as affordable. The neckline has a wide band so that a drawstring may be added at the wearer's discretion. The 3/4 sleeves also close with a drawstring. The fabric of this shift is very soft against your skin.

    Absolutely perfect!

    I’ve been shopping around for a shift for quite some time. I’m so glad that I chose Samson Historical to buy from. The fit was perfect! The material was unexpectedly soft and the quality is superb. I plan on purchasing from Samson Historical again and again. What fun! Thank you all so much!

    Beautiful and affordable

    Affordable option for getting started in re-enacting. I have another all linen that I had sewed but I was looking for something lighter and softer for summer and this is perfect. The fit is good and I really like the fact there was no drawstring at the neckline. It’s really soft and I’ve been sleeping in it!

    Wonderful construction

    This is so much more breathable than the purely cotton ones from other retailers. There’s a definite dedication to accuracy in construction. 100% linen just isn’t in my budget right now, but when ai am able to upgrade, I know who I am coming to.

    Lovely product

    This shift was really well made and soft to wear. Love the adjustable sleeves. Do wish there was a drawstring in the neckline to adjust. Longer length for a petite person (under 5 ft) but works well under a long dress. Would definitely purchase another in the future.

    Love it!

    I just received my shift and I love it. My only thought is that I would have liked the sleeves to be slightly longer, only because I wanted to have enough materiel to make a small cuff instead of the drawstring. Otherwise it is perfect!
