Girl's Surcoat - S/6-8 Plum Linen
The Surcoat is a standard overdress that was worn from the 13th Century through the 15th century in various forms. The open-sided Surcoat that we offer is based on the 14th century version also known as the "Gates of Hell" for the large deep arm openings showing the underdress. Variant of this dress can be seen in the Lutrell Psalter of 1345.
This size Small/6-8 Surcoat is in a Plum Purple linen, edged with a Silver, Purple and Tan trim around the side openings.
These are badly wrinkled from storage, and don't show true hip or hem width. They are all cut like the peach one in the picture. Hanging in some humidity will remove the wrinkles.
These were often worn with a thin belt (not included) that could be worn over, under, or half over and under. Belt is not included.
