You’ve had a busy day in the market, visiting the bustling shops and running necessary errands. Thankfully you were comfortable in your Basic Dress, a blessing considering the amount of walking you’ve done simply going to and from town!

Now you have returned to the farm, unloading your baskets of odds and ends on your table. Your family is excited to see you, offering you warm broth from a kettle on the fire. As exciting as the market may be, it’s good to be in the comfort of your home.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Basic Dress is a simple but graceful slip-on dress with long sleeves designed to function on its own or to be combined with other Epic Armoury clothes. The V-cut neckline and wrists are embroidered with a contrasting broad stitch, while the bottom hem is trimmed with matching edging. Made from comfortable, soft cotton, this dress reaches from the shoulders to the ankles and has a comfortably wide skirt to allow for easy movement.

The Basic Dress is a great start to a special costume. While inspired by Renaissance design, this dress can easily be used by almost any character or culture with a little creativity.

Available in sizes Small, Medium, Large and X-Large.
