Tudor Woman’s Kirtle from 1578

This kirtle shows the transition from the style of the early 1500’s. It is made up of a separate bodice in green wool and a separate orange wool skirt.  Both skirt and bodice have hand worked eyelets at the waist so they can be joined together with points. The sleeves are also attached using eyelets and points so that when needed, the sleeves can be taken off.
