Kyrtle, Under, Linen, c. 900 - 1100 [BSD-TN12]
Excellent product. Well made and very comfortable to wear. I use it both as an undertunic and just as a basic ceorl's tunic if the day is really hot. The color is very basic linen, which is exactly what you want if you're either looking for an undertunic or want to portray lower classes.
My quibbles are very minor. To pass authenticity for RA, I'm going to have to do a slight alterations to make the cuffs on the sleeves a little tighter towards the lower arm; should be an easy alteration that I can sew myself. I'm also going to need to alter the sleeve length to shorten it slightly.
