Renaissance Elizabethan Partlets & Blouses


Pictured is customer Jennifer wearing our historically accurate partlet. Jennifer is part of a singing group, the Cheshire Singers - and they are available for weddings.

The Elizabethan lady would wear a partlet trimmed with box pleating, or adorned with an early version of what eventually became the neck ruff. Married women wore their parlets closed at the front, while unmarried women would open the front. We offer two different partlet designs, available in a rainbow of colors and a never ending choice of fabrics.

Blouse Partlet: The first partlet option is similar to a modern blouse. It features full-length sleeves and may be worn without a chemise or smock under it.

Historically Accurate Partlet: The second partlet option is the historically accurate version, which is similar to a modern "dickey" or "mock turtleneck." It features a collar and yoke, which ties under the arms. You should wear a chemise or a smock under this type of partlet to be historically accurate.
