MEDIEVAL APPAREL

Lauren Bahno

This is what wealthy women wore in the Medieval Times. They made these beautiful dresses with wool, silk, linen, cotton, lace, sheepskin, and velvet. The group of wealthy people would wear very expensive materials such as the cotton, lace, and velvet. The more poor people would wear wool, sheepskin, and linen. Women would wear about eight layers of clothing to make the dresses be very wide and protective during battles. Some people that were not as wealthy as others, so they wore less layers. The wealthy and poor men would make their clothing out of the same materials. They would not wear as many layers though. Men would wear about one to three layers of clothing. If the men were knights so they had to wear armor made out of metals. The men would wear the clothes and the armor.
