Shifts and hose are the foundations of womenswear throughout much of history.

Shifts were t-shaped garments very similar to mens shirts, just longer and fuller. In the 13th, 14th and 15th century nothing was worn underneath the shift.

Women’s hose were knee-length socks cut from woven cloth. They were often quite loose and held up by garters just below the knee.

Linen shifts £40
Half-hose in linen or wool £38
