Linen Surcoat - L Brown (sun-damaged)
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. Variants of this dress can be seen in the Lutrell Psalter of 1345.
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.
This Large Surcoat is in Brown Linen, with a natural, and brown trim.
!!!This surcoat has sun fading at both shoulders (see second picture), down both sides of the skirt where they are exposed on the rack, and around the back of the neck. Likely, you can even out the coloration by either laying it in the sun for a few days, or washing it with color catchers a few times.!!!
