MADE TO MEASURE Woman's 1600's silk kirtle lined throughout with linen

800.00

Woman's silk kirtle based on patterns from the 1580's in Spanish tailor's manuals. The skirt is relatively slender at the hem as the style is intended to fit smoothly over the petticoats and hoop skirt beneath.  The kirtle in the photo is shown with a back lacing, as per a surviving example of this type of bodice, however, front or side-back opening garments can be made on request for no additional charge. A skype session will be required for taking measurements. As it is shown, this gown has a hem-tuck as per historical examples, however a standard turned hem can be used on request. The hem is stiffened with wool and faced rather than simply left open. As it is shown, the bodice is un-boned, but boning can be added upon request. Additionally, a boned stomacher can be made which transforms the silhouette from soft to stiff at a whim. Please add an additional 100.00 for the stomacher. Trim can be made and added for an additional charge. No commercial trim will be used, only hand made trims.
