1560 English Kirtle

Period Correct Clothing to Fit Your Style… 

  • Simplified English 16th Century Kirtle of Green Cotton Jacquard
  • Cotton lining
  • Linen square necked shift
  • Tie on sleeves
  • Sheer tie on partlet
  • Linen round cap
  • Machine sewn inner seams, hem, modern grommets to keep costs low
  • Hand finished edges, covered eyelets
  • This project was a simple 16th century kirtle that was kept simple with some modern substitutions like grommets per request of the client to keep costs down
  • This will be worn to highland games, celticfest, and germanfest events so maximum versatility was desired, hence all of the piece by piece options
  • The client also “runs hot” so we stayed with linen and cotton to keep everything as cool as possible
