A gown worn by women of the nobility in the 13th century, over the shirt.
The elegance and wealth is found in the fullness and drape (belt required), it seems that the dresses were very long (potentially higher than the stature of the wearer).
They were bloused at the waist with the belt becoming inconspicuous. The way they walk, with the toe forward, helps to move without crushing the fabric.
The sleeves are loose on the upper arm, but once past the elbow they become very tight on the forearm which has little buttons.
