Teal Herringbone Wool Kirtle by CenturiesSewing Teal Herringbone Wool Kirtle by CenturiesSewing
16th century kirtle, hand sewn linen partlet, lots of eyelets!
A full write up can be found here: [link]

*edit* Adding in here that I have no documentation/evidence for the use of herringbone wool in the 16th century be it England or otherwise. I based my use of the fabric off the Pisa "house gown" made of a patterned twill [link] in that the herringbone wool gave a similar textured feel. Since I do not do living history I'm ok with this as my personal choice, but I would not use this in a kit until more information comes to light.

Thank you =). Unfortunately I don't have any close ups of the kirtle, these were just quick pictures before the storms rolled in. Are there any particular details you are looking for?
