The term “chemise dress” has traditionally been used to describe a dress straight to the sides and left unfit for life, the way in underwear known as a shirt. This term is often used to describe outerwear during the transitional periods in fashion (especially in 1780 and 1950), to distinguish the new styles, from inept prevalent, fitting silhouette.
In the eighteenth century, the primary female garment was the shirt, or displacement, a knee-length, loose garments of white linen, with a silhouette straight or slightly triangular. The chemise term used to describe an outer garment 1780, when Queen Marie Antoinette of France popularized a sort of informal, loose dress of pure white cotton, like a shirt in both cut and material, which became known as chemise à la reine. After chemise dresses, straight cut and gathered high waist with belt or lanyard, has become the dominant fashion, around 1800, there was the need to describe his silhouette, and the term “linen” went almost exclusively to his ancient meaning.
Chemises evolve dresses
Dresses were next described as shirts around 1910, when free belt, clothing column styles reminiscent of the early nineteenth century became popular. (The chemise still worn as underwear, but in 1920, it has developed into a hip-length, tubular, vest-like garment with narrow straps.) Although the lines, clothes unbelted 1920 was more like a dress shirts previous style, and since then has been called chemise dresses by historians, the term was sometimes used at the time. After the fashion is back in a silhouette closer to 1930, the shirt dress appeared around 1940, this time in the form of a cut dress to fall straight from the shoulders, or collected in a yoke, but always meant to be worn with a belt in life.
Modern chemise dresses-sheath, tunica and shift
The decade of the twentieth century to the dress shirt, was in 1950. Earlier that decade, the Parisian fashion designers Christian Dior and Cristobal Balenciaga, along with other designers in Europe and the US, he began experimenting with vaginal tunic dresses and inept and belted dresses linen continued to be popular. The main change, however, came in 1957, when both Dior and Balenciaga presented straight, Chemise dresses unbelted that roamed life altogether. Called shirts or bags, these dresses to be a revolutionary change of direction in the fashion, and has been the subject of a lively debate in the US press; many commentators, especially men, considered these styles figure-hiding unsightly and unnatural, while supporters praised its simplicity and clean lines, modern look. (The term “lot” may have been a reference to sacque century, or lace dress that Balenciaga was revived in the form of shirts with the entire back, but it was also an apt description of the bag-like silhouette chemise.)
Waistless styles, both straight and the line continued to be controversial in the coming years, but gradually incorporated in most wardrobes, and has become a staple of fashion in 1960. The term “shirt”, however, faded from use in the early 1960s, perhaps because the press hype of 1957 and 1958, had given negative connotations (or because of linen underwear was only a memory, having torn the last in 1920). Cut dresses are now called rounds; variations were more extensive dress muumuu and tents. After a further period of garments installed in 1970, was rickety clothes again revived in 1980. Since then, however, the women have had the opportunity to choose from a variety of shapes, styles and inappropriate simply described as a right, or wide.
