Medieval Dress / Overdress Marit with Cording, dark blue
This medieval overdress has a snug-fitting bodice and an A-line skirt. Lacings running down to the waist replace the usual dividing seams and allow you to adjust the size for a custom fit - if you remove all cords, you can break the dress down into its individual parts.
The ends of the cords are equipped with metal tips that make the threading much easier. We recommend opening the centre front lacing only, so you can just slip in and re-thread the cords to close. The sleeves are also tied to the shoulders with braided cords and can be easily removed.
The top front features open edges that give the dress a casual look.
This medieval dress is suitable for the portrayal of women from the lower walks of life and is for example ideal for a tavern's landlady / innkeeper, a maid, a peasant woman - or a Viking woman. In any case, it should always be worn in combination with an undergarment or a shift, as the slits on the front, back and sides of the skirt allow very deep insights!

This medieval dress is part of Battle-Merchant's line of period clothing and medieval garments for men, women and children. From the first sketch to the last stitch, this garment was planned, designed and handcrafted with particular attention to detail. Our clothes are modeled (sometimes accurately, sometimes less so) on historical examples, grave finds and original museum pieces where they exist. We always endeavour to keep the necessary adjustments to today's standards, e.g. in terms of size and manufacturing process, to a minimum. Just see for yourself!
