The cut of our Gored Kyrtle is based on a number of extant garments which share similar patterning details, specifically, the Skjoldehamn kyrtle (rcd 1029) and Kragelund man's kyrtle (1045-1155).
This kyrtle falls into the "Nockert Type 1" classification, having a tubular torso. The lower edge is full due to gores inserted into the side and/or center front and back. The neckline has a slight V shape taken from the Skjoldehamn kyrtle (shown at right). The sleeves are tapered to the wrist, and has a square gusset under the arm for freedom of movement.
Please note: Colours for this range have been carefully matched to natural dye samples. Please refer to the Fabric Colours, Weaves and Information section.
