THE STORY OF THE COUNTRY WENCH Sheâ€™s been portrayed in storybooks, plays, films, television, fairs, paintings, music and more, the Country Wench, though not the richest or most glamorous character sheâ€™s always been one that many find endearing, modest, fair, and beautiful.
WHO IS SHE? •
She’s often times the fairest in all of the land.
Hardworking, fun, caring, and sassy.
Very loyal to her family and friends.
TWILL BODICE •
Twill bodice’s look great in Hunter Green, Rouge, and Admiral. Really nice ones come completely reversible to Jewel Black
The two lengths of steel boning alongside the grommets add strength to the bodice which helps to lift the bosom.
Always be sure to order a bodice based on your natural waist size. So be sure to measure yourself before making a purchase
A quality twill bodice will be machine washable, however should be hung to dry
GATHERED PEASANT SKIRTS •
A comfortable and affordable gathered peasant skirt is of soft cotton. It should resemble the weave of linen but sans the cost of linen
Double set of lace holes in the back of the waistband allow for adjusting the fit
A great peasant skirt will have an extrahigh waistband rather than elastic so that you can keep your chemise tucked in all day and never look disheveled
CELTIC CHEMISE •
Made of 100% cotton muslin
Trim is sewn through the full and long sleeves
Available in black or white
Comes in one size which fits most
RING BELT •
Carry pouches, favors, mugs, and whatnots with the use of a ring belt
Serves the need for both fashion and function
A really nice ring belt will be handmade and dyed in order to give it those authentic details that we all like to have in our outfits
CAPITANO HAT â€˘
Worn in Barcelona, Spain in the late 16th century, the renaissance-era Capitano evolved into the 17th century Cavalier hat.
Made of suede velvet and constructed with buckram using traditional methods. All seams are finished and it is completely lined on the inside. The brim is held up with a sturdy ribbon strung through eyelets.
Five-inch brim and comes with two ostrich plumes that each reach 22 inches long.
