A medieval blouse for LARP and the medieval market
When looking for the right garment for a LARP or a medieval festival, the question often arises: dress or combination of blouse and skirt? Surely a lady will like to fall back on the blouse, especially at higher temperatures. But the blouse of today is not typical for the Middle Ages. The first blouses were probably worn by the crusaders. According to tradition, they wore a so-called pelus robe over their armor to protect them from dust and dirt. This is said to have given rise to the term blouse.
So the medieval blouse for the maid, peasant woman or noblewoman was often rather the top of a shirt or the undergarment. The short shirt, the vest or the tunic to pull over dress or undergarment was the kind of blouse that could be worn by ladies in the Middle Ages.

The right medieval blouse for the peasant or for the fine lady
In the Middle Ages, the social status or the origin of the wearer could always be determined by the garb. It was unthinkable for the upper class to soil their fine hands with rough work. Thus, the upper class in the Middle Ages could afford to indicate their elevated status with the wide sleeves of a blouse. Farmers' wives, barmaids and simple maids wore tighter-fitting cuts and sleeves in order to be able to really grip.
But it’s a question if they thought at all to a kind of style for their garb in the Middle Ages. Clothing that indicated the differences between the sexes among the lower classes did not appear until late in the Middle Ages. Even among the nobility, clothing with lace or other jewelry was initially rather frowned upon. But as the Middle Ages progressed and the time of minstrels and festive tournaments began, the lady of the world also showed herself with distinguished blouses and dresses. Thus, she could make an impression with ruffles, lace and elaborate lacing.
