The Memling Gown (kirtle) style was seen as early
as William I (1066-1154). Similar styles were seen later, more often as undergowns, worn beneath surcoats, sideless
gowns, corsages, and other overgowns.
Medieval artwork shows necklines which vary from rounded to square, with other shapes showing up
sometimes, as well. The neckline (and sleeves) can be left plain or accented with trim and braids. The long
sleeves are tapered to a snug fit at the wrist. Many medieval sleeves either partially or completely covered the hands,
but this can be adjusted to your individual desire. The hemline is very full and has a training effect. This gown
generally requires 13 yards of fabric (depending on fabric width.)
Pricing starts at $300 and can go up depending on fabrics & embellishments
chosen or design changes.
most of our garments, you can request changes in the design to suit your needs or vision of the outfit.
