Surcoat, size Small
This short-sleeved kirtle or surcot is based on the Bocksten Man find from Sweden (probably 1350-1370). It consists of a front and a back piece, each with a gore inserted at the waist, and with two side gores.
The sleeves are short as seen in another extant garment, Herjolfsnes no. 39. It has been identified by archaeologist Poul Nørlund as a woman’s garment and is carbon dated to 1380-1530.
Material: 100% wool tabby, medium weight.
The kirtle is entirely hand sewn with waxed linen thread.
