Medieval skirts - everything for the fair maiden
Skirts in the Middle Ages had little in common with the legwear for women we know today. Extensive borders, wide cuts, petticoats, lace and aprons turned them into multifaceted witnesses of history. Here you will find a wide selection of high-quality and authentic skirts that correspond to the style of the Middle Ages. Dress in a manner befitting your status and in keeping with the times, as befits your role.
Flowing medieval skirts and stylish garments
In the Middle Ages it was unthinkable for a woman to wear trousers. It had to be a skirt in any case. Unless she was one of the rare surviving ladies on a pirate ship. All the more extensive, were the flowing skirts that women and ladies in the Middle Ages wore instead - depending on their status and income. In the Middle Ages, there was usually a plain garment in brown for everyday life. But for holidays there were also festive skirts in black, red, green or even blue with stripes and coloured hems. With our range, you have the choice of what occasion and status you want to dress for. We have linen skirts, cotton skirts and skirts with elegant ruffled hems. Take a look at the different cuts. Decide which style suits you best and dresses you best. Your role should be expressed naturally. A peasant maid in a striped skirt of soft cotton is not realistic, no matter how good the skirt looks.
Because the poor income of a peasant would not have been enough for more than a plain brown or grey. Colours were very expensive. The colours red, green or even black were very costly to produce. The much-used cotton did not exist until well after the discovery of America. It took time for it to find its way to the markets in the principalities. For your comfort, we were not so particular about the fabric of some skirts and used cotton. Wool in the Middle Ages was relatively coarse. A person from today would find it quite scratchy. Cotton is a good substitute fabric for the skirt. Moreover, a skirt made of cotton is much easier to care for. It can easily get dirty at a LARP event.
The matching accessories for the skirt from the Middle Ages
The typical earthy colours of the skirts from the Middle Ages also create their authentic effect with the fabrics and cuts. But it is only in combination with other stylish pieces of medieval clothing that a medieval skirt unfolds its full effect. At the other navigation points you will find the blouses and bodice waistcoats also made of cotton that match the skirt. The pirate blouses, corsage blouses and blouses with the distinctive bell sleeves together with a skirt make a truly hearty garment. In the navigation we also offer a matching medieval garb for children. The next LARP meeting with a focus on the Middle Ages or the next medieval market can thus go off in style.
