’The devil is in the details’ is one idiom you’ve heard at length--and it’s never been more true than when referring to sewing for the upper class.
When the lady of the house ordered a beautiful new Lucrezia Shift, you figured it would be an easy task. Alas! This shift is more beautiful than your expert tailoring expected, which means you’ve underestimated how long it would take to create its fine shirring sleeves.
Now as you examine the shift on one of your shop’s mannequins, you are very pleased with the result. Still, you should have charged the lady double.
Epic Armoury's Off-White Shift Lucrezia is a romantic and loose fitting slip-on underdress. Made from light and breathable medium cotton and cotton crepé, this dress is designed as a base layer for your costume. This off-white shift will help keep your outer layers clean, moderate your body temperature, and add a unique layer thanks to its decorated sleeves. The dress reaches from the shoulders to the ankles and has a wide skirt with plenty of room for easy movement.
The Shift Lucrezia’s shirring sleeves are long and tied around the bicep, elbow, and wrist with cotton drawstrings. As an elegant design that will give a simple dress a base layer of style, this shift is perfect for LARPers, cosplayers, and reenactors.
