Patched-up Linen Dress
Halloween night witch costume
The “Archeress” Сhemise is definitely one of our most popular linen women's outfits. It has wide and elegant sleeves, it can be used as a chemise and as a dress and it looks really good. To make a long story short: it's popular.
This is a special edition of this pretty demanded dress with some changes to make the style different. The first and the most recognizable upgrade is patches stitched up to the dress with the visible decorative seam. Additionally, we've used unbleached linen which is more dense and close so we had to change the pattern a bit. This linen is a material I want to tell more about. Overall linen is an extremely sturdy, beautiful, natural and historically accurate fabric with amazing properties. But this one is the best of the best for historical costume - it has visible structure, it's dense but not too harsh and it looks just amazing with patches on it.
This dress design is based on XIII-XIV century European feminine costume pattern. Classic Gothic silhouette emphasizes breast and waist. Long and wide sleeves can be adjusted to any length with the help of drawstring casing. Additionally, the skirt is adjusted with one more gore to be wider. Making this dress we tried to balance between Halloween witch costume and more realistic interpretation of historical costume so we ended up with this kind of fairytale character outfit which is based on the authentic prototypes but can be easily turned into the absolutely mythical outfit with some stylish accents and accessories.
