Thy smock of silk, both fair and white,
With gold embroidered gorgeously;
The petticoat of sandal right,
And these I bought thee gladly.
“Green Sleeves” Medieval Dress
Noblewomen's XIV century woolen dress
When the dusk comes down and the shadows play, it’s time for the secrets to be revealed – her heart is cold, there is no love in it. Even being a king, as it’s sung in a ballad “Greensleeves”, won’t help you to win the heart of fabulously beautiful lady in the red wine dress. In vain he fought for her, gifted with precious stones and splendid cloth – all day through she walks in beauty, like the night, deeply sank in her sweet dreams of romantic heroes and heroines, and would never turn her eyes up at him.
Cruel thing, she might be called – who knows! Her heart might have belonged to the knight, who once had given a symbol of his love to hold close to the heart - the book on tragic story of Tristan and Iseult burning passion. All her figure is wrapped in mystery and there is one more hidden in her elaborate medieval dress…
Silhouette, dress elements and fabric details
The dress from the second half of the 14th century, made of the finest woolen cloth, enchants you from the first sight - deep red wine color of the gown contrasts with the emerald green sleeves and gives an impression of accomplished sophisticated look. Wide scoop neckline, richly embroidered with beads and bugles, elegant low waistline and tight-fit side lacing make it an ideal choice for those who appreciate a balance of noble modesty and a tiny hint of intriguing allurement.
Off the cuff you will never discover the true essence of the gown! It is hidden in the long, regular-fitting sleeves with the copious amounts of minute buttons. Sleeves are attached to the dress with the linen lace, as it was common for noble women clothing from that time.
The wide floor-length skirt, with four additional godets, is about 6.5-7.6 yards (6-7 meters) in length of the hemline and allows you to move freely, whether you decide to slip away to the romantic date or ride all day long in the thickest of the forest. So called “hell windows”, trim-finished cut-outs on the skirt, in which hands are passed through and the front of the skirt is held up, will certainly help you to fulfill the most adventurous and daring undertakings.
Now, all the mysteries have been unveiled apart from one – who is that fairy lady in sumptuous dress? The answer is up to you…
