"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"

Beautiful work! I have a question about the construction. Were the bodice and skirt made separately and then attached? Or did you add the gores into a solid piece of fabric? Thanks!

This is nice. Just enough white to enhance the black dress.

Extraordinarily beautiful work - clearly a lot of thought and love went into this lovely bliaut. Well done!
