Froca - Plain, Celtic, Celtic Wreath (Irish Bog Dress)


This is a very easy-to-wear garment. It is our skillfully constructed bodice with a firmly attached skirt, worn over a full-length chemise. The upper bodice portion is built with the same sturdy construction as our standard bodices. There is boning by the lacing to stop unseemly bunching. Made of solid-colored, heavy cotton twill for a durable and long-lasting garment. This garment is usually worn over a full-length Wench Chemise. For added flair, chose our embroidered, full-length Celtic Wench Chemise.  The Froca  could also be worn with pants and a chemise or basic shirt for LARPing. Made to be fully reversible, as well. Black is the standard reversed side for the bodice top, skirt color would stay the same color.  For an added flair wear our Celtic Wench Belt over the Froca!


Plain Froca: Solid color, no embroidery, no shoulder epaulets. 

Celtic Wreath Froca: This garment features lovely Celtic knotwork Wreath embroidery on the bodice and the skirt hem. 

Celtic Froca: There is traditional Celtic knotwork embroidered on the epaulets. Which have the added feature of keeping your shoulders from getting sunburned! 

Sleeve Options: If tie on sleeves option added, there would be grommets along the shoulder line.  See below for photos of sleeve styles 

Side Lacing Option: If side lacing is added, the dress will be split all the way down the skirt as well.

Length: Comes approx. 54" to 56" in length as standard.  Longer or shorter lengths are available by choosing the Height option desired. Let us know if you need a specific length. 

Pockets Option: There will be a visible stitch line on the front side panel in order to secure the pocket. The pocket will be our standard deep style pocket, large enough to hold a water bottle.
