Flax Costume “Forget Me Not”
Dress, chemise, chaperon and apron set
Dress: We were often requested to make “medieval dress with short sleeves” for the hot weather events and places. Though it sounds like oxymoron we did our best designing dress which looks almost medieval but has short sleevs as well. Slim fit bodice of "Forget me not" dress emphasizes breast and waist while wide skirt with 4 additional gussets drapes with soft pleats. All this combines into well-known silhouette of the XIII-XIV centuries.
The skirt, sleeves and neckline are hemmed with the contract color bordering. The lacing fastening at the fore part of a gown are also decorated with same bordering.
Colour of the trim can be selected according to the desired colour of the dress.
Chemise is a very classic and a necessary part of any Renaissance and Medieval costume. It is made of thin and very light natural white batiste. This chemise has a bell-shaped and wide silhouette with wide sleeves and lacing on wrists. It is really wide and rich with bottom length over three yards.
Apron is made of natural flax linen fabric. It is simple and inexpensive but interesting part of medieval costume. You can use it to protect your dress when doing any work at events.
Chaperone. This traditional medieval headpiece known as "chaperone" will complete the look of your costume. It is made of natural flax-linen fabric and it is a "must have" piece for hot summertime events.
