This c. 1525 gown is made of two pieces: The white outer gown of cotton velveteen fully-lined in satin and the inset in cotton velveteen.
The included inset is worn over a chemise (not included). The reversible to black inset provides a lift for your bosom and holds in your tummy. In medieval times, the inset might have been a complete dress extending to the floor. We chose to create this abbreviated design which just may have been the choice of our medieval ancestors. The inset is reversible and machine washable.
The outer gown is then worn over the inset and chemise. It laces up the front "V," where the inset shows through. The forearms lace up to elbow for a snug fit and the upper parts of the sleeves have small elastic pieces for a comfortable fit. These pieces may be shortened with a safety pin or a quick stitch should your arms increase or decrease in size.
This gown is to be worn with a chemise (not included) designed to pouf through the slashes.
