This design is based on the gowns worn during the 12th Century. The gown features wide
trailing sleeves, V-shaped neckline and a soft girdle belt. Tablet woven braids with
geometrical patterns were often used as decorations on garments, but the 'Tara' gown
is decorated with embroidered trims based on a 12th century stone carving design instead.
This gown is inspired by the beautiful geometrical carvings at Durham Cathedral,
the amazing round chapel at Ludlow Castle, the art of tablet weaving and
the beautiful flowing lines of early medieval clothing.
The gown is laced down the back, with handmade cords, through hand-sewn holes.
All hems and details are hand-finished.
The gown will be made-to-measure.
The gown is made from hand-woven Dupion silk, and fully lined with acetate satin,
with double layer lining on the skirt in the sides to accentuate the shape.
It comes with a matching medieval style pouch bag and a sturdy fabric gown-cover.
Gown is shown in no 46 Green Silk.
Price : £ 1290 in any of the 80 shades of silk.
