Medieval Women's Clothing

 
5     Medieval women's clothing styles changed throughout the Middle Ages, but some things remained similar throughout the time period. Women wore long dresses, never pants or short skirts. Many dresses were so long that the hems lay on the floor. Dresses often had two or more layers. The under layer might have been a long white shift, a simple dress with long sleeves.
