Citizen from Langers
at the end of 16th century, vicarage maid from Langers, clothed
dress made of thick flax. We used fabrics in blue –grey color
which correspond woad tone. The bodice lacing at the front side
enabled to dress without any other help. Inside is a corset shaped
according to actual fashion. The corset is made in a form so the
maid could manually work. The corset is laced at the back.
The last layer is the linen shirt. Common women usually did not
wear sophisticated verdugado because of its unhandiness. Our maid
wishes to be pretty, so she wears under colored underskirt
another petticoat. White petticoat covers sewn stocking and
probably a renaissance underware about which we have only unclear
first edition of Orchésographie, written by a local canon Jehan
Tabourot /Thoinot Arbeau.
