Garibaldi Shirt is a loose blouse worn by women and children in the mid-19th century, made in imitation of the red shirts worn by the soldiers of the Italian hero and patriot Giuseppe Garibaldi.
The fashion for the Garibaldi shirt was initiated by Empress Eugenie of France and it was extremely popular during the first half of the 1860s. Versions in white and lighter fabrics also appeared, and children frequently wore it.
This is considered to be the direct ancestor of the modern women blouse.
