"Elina" natural linen midi dress

The "Elina" dress is our interpretation of the cotardie, or "kirtle" in English, this garment was very popular during the Middle Ages, until the dawn of the Baroque era. It is also a reminder of women's clothing at the end of the Viking era.

Made in pleasant, 200g/m2 washed linen, this sober and refined dress follows its original philosophy, using the minimum amount of fabric to avoid waste, giving this long dress a moderate and harmonious skirt width.
You can adjust the slenderness of the waist with the bows on the sides. For a little touch of modernity, you will find two pockets.

Just like the real kirtle, you can wear it over a smock, in a medieval way, or even under a mantle or paltock. It will become a favorite garment to wear almost all year round when paired with your favorite stocks!

This midi version has a shorter length than the original, as well as ¾ sleeves, which will make it an ideal piece for mid-season.
