The Avon Jupon is from the early 1500s Flanders, which was considered part of northern France. Today, it’s Belgium. Lacing on each side of the bodice area makes it possible to feast to your heart’s content and still easily fit this dress. Additional laces from the wrist to elbow provide a snug fit. The detachable sleeves provide an option. They can easily be interchanged with other colors in the same style or different styles to expand the look of your medieval wardrobe. The Avon Jupon cinches the waist and provides a lift for the bosom, eliminating the need to wear a bra. The gown is designed to be worn with a Classic Chemise. The chemise’s extra sleeve fabric can be tucked into the top part of the gown’s sleeves to make them fuller. It is made of 100% cotton velveteen and fully lined in satin.
In this manner, women go about the countryside in Limousin, France. This gown was worn just before Limousin became famous for its limouge porcelain. Made of cotton velveteen and half-lined in satin, this gown has sleeves that tie on with ribbon. You can wear the gown with or without the sleeves, a nice option for hot days, or try new sleeves with your gown. The bodice does the job of a corset to lift the bosom and hold in the tummy. We recommend any of our chemises with this gown.
(SPECIAL DICOUNTED PRICE FOR STOCK ONLY)This c. 1525 gown is made of two pieces: The outer gown of cotton velveteen fully-lined in satin and the inset, cotton velveteen. The inset is worn over the Classic Chemise. The reversible-to-black inset provides a lift for your bosom and holds in your tummy. In medieval times, the inset might have been a complete dress extending to the floor. We chose to create this abbreviated design which just may have been the choice of our medieval ancestors. The inset is reversible and machine washable. The outer gown is then worn over the inset and chemise. It laces up the front ‘V,’ where the inset shows through. The forearms lace up to elbow for a snug fit and the upper parts of the sleeves have small elastic pieces for a comfortable fit. These pieces may be shortened with a safety pin or a quick stitch should your arms increase or decrease in size. This gown is worn with a Classic chemise designed to pouf through the slashes.

Copied from an Italian painting of two ladies of the Torella family watching the hunt from their palace terrace, this sleeveless gown has sewn-on satin overskirts and is made of cotton velveteen. Lacing up the sides of the bodice area give a great lift for the bosom but are more forgiving to the waist.
