This dress is based on 12th-13th century originals with trumpet sleeves, shown in illuminated manuscripts, murals and panels from that tera. Trumpet sleeves symbolized the high, richer class. Because well-to-do ladies did not have to do any physical labor, they could wear dresses with 'impractical' sleeves. Dresses like this were often worn as a shift, while a surcotte in a rich color was worn over it. The shape of the shift gave the whole outfit moreshape. From the fifteenth century onwards, ladies also wore a dress with trumpet sleeves under the cotehardie. This beautiful loose-fitting dress is made of light cotton. The dress has historical gores (triangular pieces of fabric) which make the skirt wider. The neckline is fairly wide so that it is not clearly visible underneath another item of clothing. The sleeves have a lace so that you can adjust the shape to your own wishes. You can wear the dress under a surcotte, cotehardie or bliaut and the fit is best when combined with a belt.
