This is an outfit consisting of an under gown and over gown, based on a medieval cote hardie. The skirt is gently flared and hemmed to allow freedom of movement and elegance in the field without the bulk of a full circle skirt.
The fronts of both gowns are laced through stitched eyelets. The under gown is a fine linen with close-fitting over long sleeves, closed at the wrist with small buttons and hand worked loops. The over gown is a heavier linen with elbow length sleeves to allow easy arm movement for work while keeping you warm.
The gowns are designed to wear together, but the style allows one to choose either to wear alone in warmer weather.
Both fabrics are 100% linen dyed at home.
