This beautiful medieval style dress has no historical prototype, however the silhouette and the style of finishing corresponds to the latter half of the fourteenth century. The inspiration of the pattern comes from the fit of the Norman gown which has been dated from that particular period.
The dress is made of high quality dense woolen fabric and is finished with trims of our own design. The trim around the neckline is embroidered with bugle beads and beads.
1. Sleeveless dress. It has lacing on each side and requires precise measurements since it has a very slight fitting gap. There are cut-outs finished with the trim on the skirt, so called by contemporaries as "hell windows".
Fair lady's skirt of the old days had to be of floor-length according to all rules and fashions, hiding any allusion to existence of the legs under it and essentially complicating the walking process. Ladies passed their hands through these "windows" and upheld the front of the skirt while walking.
2. Removable sleeves. They are attached to the dress with the help of linen lacing sewed in the sleeve top. Sleeves have plenty of small buttons to achieve the supreme fit and are decorated with the narrow trim.
