"This is a 12th century style dress called a "bliaut". It's made from the midweight IL019 linen in Black and Bleached. The embroidery on the yoke was done with pearl cotton, accented with jet beads"

A great example of a bliaut, right down to the way the waist crinkles up. Love the black and white for the contrast it gives the trim and embroidered details. Beautiful!!
