Saya of Eleonora de Castile
This is an interesting
dress. First of all, it is
asymmetric. On the left flank, leather strips (lacing) are sewn
into the opening of the garment, so that the undergown is
visible. The proportions of this dress are somewhat
strange. The circumference of breast and waist are both less than 80
cm, as would be for an extremely thin person. On the other hand, the
circumference of hips is 92 cm (normal), and the length of the garment
is 197 cm.
