This dress was worn extensively by both the peasant and free class women during the 12th and 13th centuries. It is both durable and easy to care for. Although the cut is straight down to the waist, it flares at the bottom to allow freedom of movement for horseback riding. Includes a girdle of the same fabric that is tightened with black cording to provide emphasis to the waist (no lace). The sleeves have elastic that gives the impression of smocking. Choose Berry or Meadow Green. Colors may vary slightly. Sizes S (6-8), M (10-12), L (14-16) and XL (18-20).
