PageHeaders/Savoy_Gown.jpg

The Savoy Gown is named for Louise of Savoy, mother of King Francis I of France.  The long gown is has square, round, or shaped necklines.  The sleeves are looser and more flowing that those seen earlier in the medieval period.  Sleeves are often made in double layers to give the impression of multiple sleeves without the additional weight of multiple garments. There are multiple versions of the decorative over-sleeves, which can be left to hang open or can be pinned in various arrangements. 
 
Pricing starts at $250 and can go up depending on fabrics & embellishments chosen or design changes. 
As with most of our garments, you can request changes in the design to suit your needs or vision of the outfit.
