Matilda la Zouche's Wardrobe - Side-lacing kirtle

Taymouth hours gown by Catrijn, via Flickr

    This is a lovely gown, but if you examine the original illumination you will see that the white on the bottom is actually the lining and not trim. The bottom of the overgown is pinned up to shorten it for hunting.

  • Rowan McDowell

    I agree. I thought it was a nice try though!

  • Elspeth Clerk

    Yes, a very nice try.

Matilda la Zouche's Wardrobe Burgundian gown, mid-15th century This is a very simple garment. It adds an easy and loose layer of warmth and is always worn over a kirtle. In the King Rene manuscipt, Le Cueur d'Amours Espris, women are depicted removing their Burgundian-style gowns to reveal short sleeve kirtles which lace up the front. The kirtles have black inset pieces pinned to them, which gives the characteristic filled neckline seen in many portraits.
