The kirtle is a dress that can be opened at the front. Kirtles were worn from the 14th until the 16th century and early kirtles only covered the torso. When the skirt was fastened to the kirtle it was often worn as an undergarment. Only later the kirtle became an overgarment.
A kirtle like this is depicted in paintings of i.a. the Flemish artist Rogier van der Weyden. This kirtle is made of linen, wool or starched cotton. Sewing machine seams are not visible at the outside. If requested it is also available hand-sewn.
