Tudor Woman’s Kirtle from 1520


1520 Kirtle:  Made in dark red wool with a blue linen lining. This is a one piece kirtle with the front panels cut in one with the skirt. The rest of the skirt is pleated and attached onto the bodice before the bodice lining is stitched down.  This kirtle was worn with a blue wool partlet and a green linen petticoat. Made for a 16th century re-enactment event at Kentwell Hall, Suffolk.
