- Curator's comments
- For similar chemise from Sofades, Karditsa, see Hatzimichali, 2, p. 84, fig. 80.
The embroidery on this Karagouna chemise is very good quality, suggesting a date in the late 19th century; it is unlikely to be earlier because the linen weave is so fine: earlier linen weaves tended to be coarser (information from Ioanna Papantoniou 28.2.2014).
