  Chemise - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The chemise, also called a smock or shift, is a simple garment worn next to the skin to protect clothing from sweat and body oils.
Women wore shifts or chemises underneath their gowns or robes; men wore chemises with their trousers or braies, and covered the chemises with garments such as doublets, robes, etc. In those times, it was usually the only piece of clothing that was washed regularly.
Men's chemises may be said to still survive, as the common shirt.

Use the Smock Pattern Generator to draft a smock custom-fitted to your measurements, and use the instructions a Constructing an Elizabethan Smock to sew the smock pattern together.
