Pleasant Peasant Dress


This beautiful medieval dress is perfect for the challenges that peasant and working class women of the 12th and 13th centuries would have faced. The durable fabric has elastic banded sleeves with flared bottom. A matching black-cored girdle allows for an accentuated profile. Meadow Green on closeout, available in Size M (10-12) only.


This dress was worn extensively by both the peasant and free class women during the 12th and 13th centuries. It is both durable and easy to care for. Although the cut is straight down to the waist, it flares at the bottom to allow freedom of movement for horseback riding. Includes a girdle of the same fabric that is tightened with black cording to provide emphasis to the waist (no lace). The sleeves have elastic that gives the impression of smocking. Colors may vary slightly. Berry Red available in sizes S (6-8), M (10-12), L (14-16) and XL (18-20). Meadow Green on closeout, available in Size M (10-12) only.

Nice dress
Got this dress a year or two ago in meadow green. I would describe it as a pea soup green, but that sounds unattractive, and this color is lovely. At 5'7" I don't consider myself overly tall, but this dress is definately short in the hem. An underdress or skirt is required but makes some fun options to play with. Construction has held up well to occasional wear and is comfortably cool in moderate heat. - Lindsay

Many years ago this was my first purchase from Museum Replicas.  I was very pleased with the dresses basic construction.  However, I have a wide back - moderate bust and when I lifted my arms over my head it would put a strain on the stitches in the arm pits.  The stitches eventually tore and I had to break out the sewing machine.  I am 5'3 and the hem of the dress was right at my ankles. So tall women may want to add length or opt for a long lacy skirt underneath.  If you are handy with a sewing machine this is a great base to work with.
