Miranda The Tempest Medieval Gown by DaisyViktoria Miranda The Tempest Medieval Gown by DaisyViktoria
I made this gown for a client recently. This is a medieval gown known by many names such as cotehardie, kirtle, cotte, gothic fitted gown. It is historically accurate to early 15th century, just unlined and sewn by machine. In addition to being a lovely historical gown, this is also the same style seen in Waterhouse's Miranda The Tempest. I'm a big fan of both Preraphaelites and medieval fashion, so I really love doing projects like this!

Haha thanks! As far as we currently know, TECHNICALLY I should be using wool for the outer layer instead of linen, but then my poor client could not wear it but a few weeks a year! ;p

I think even in the Middle Ages no-one was quite stupid enough to try to wear full length, long-sleeved wool dresses all year around, and as far as I know women had to keep their arms covered up at all times, especially the noblewomen who would be able to afford the dress. It's pretty likely that they would've used all kinds of fabric and not just wool.

I agree! The only reason I don't like to say outright that we know they used linen as an outer fabric is because I haven't seen any extant evidence of such. We do have more concrete evidence for wool, silk, and brocades, as well as linen for linings and undergarments. But yes, I think in the summer, linen would have made sense, especially since we see them wearing short sleeved dressed hiked up in the fields already! Some wools are actually not that bad though, especially if you don't line them. However, they're also quite expensive now, and most of what is easier to get or cheaper for us is actually pretty hot!
