Ladies Medieval Kyrtle


The Medieval Kyrtle was an everyday garment worn by women for hundreds of years. It would have been made from wool or heavy linen and, was worn over a shift underdress. I have used a drill fabric, with machine embroidered, linen blend for the contrast.

New for 2023, I have made these Kyrtles from a drill fabric which is both hard wearing and easy to wash. I have allowed myself some artistic licence and,  used a machine embroidered,  linen blend for the godet and sleeve trims.  We know that embroidery was a skill taught from a very young age, so thought that it would add interest to an otherwise fairly plain garment.
these are best worn over my cream shifts.
