Variously described as chemise, short nighties or silk slips, this collection is all designer nightwear. All the slips are made from silk or silk chiffon and many are decorated with fine French lace. The nice thing about a chemise is it can be a dual purpose garment. Many chemise designs are equally suited to be worn as a nightdress or as a petticoat under a day dress. The selection of chemises offered here are all made to order. The Diki and the Jane Woolrich Design are both UK brands and made to measure in the UK. Liliana Casanova slips are made to order in France. Each garment is hand-made by an individual seamstress. This is not factory line sleepwear, but luxury high end garments where cost is not an issue but quality, fabric and style is.
