A sleeveless outer gown to wear over a chemise or blouse and skirt.
The quintessence of medieval dress, the surcoat, was worn over a chemise or a plain gown and was often belted at the waist. This version is made of cotton twill for long wear and easy care. The full skirt is longer in the back than in the front to create a graceful train in the back. The wide armhole openings are trimmed with metallic woven trim.
