Renaissance Merchant Gown with Red Petticoat

Merchant Gown with Red Petticoat Renaissance

Renaissance clothing is worn in multiple layers for warmth and ease of washing. This is a merchant class outfit with a blackwork embroidered cotton chemise, square-necked bodice, green linen skirt and red cotton petticoat. The back lacing on the boned bodice indicates a higher class than peasant as assistance would have been required to get in and out of the garment.
