What do the women of Kinyn wear? Part 4

Nessa’s adventures in The Healer and the Pirate cost her four good dresses. Lucky for her, pirate treasure paid for most of them!

This dress is also made of expensive silk. Aster flowers were used to dye the fabric to a shimmering blue that actually goes well with Nessa’s unusual hair color. Both the dye and the silk is what gives the dress its value.

Since the dress is one piece, it is easy to shimmy into in a hurry. The lace bodice gives it some shape as well as support. Though, Nessa would have preferred a much higher collar.

The sleeves are what are called “bridged sleeves” and they add some decoration to an otherwise unadorned dress.
