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. Could also be worn with pants and a chemise or 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. Removable Sleeves are available as well.  For an added flair wear our Celtic Wench Belt over the Froca!


Plain Froca: Solid color, no embroidery, no shoulder epaulets. If tie on sleeves option added, there would be grommets along the shoulder line.  

Celtic Wreath Froca: This garment features lovely Celtic knotwork Wreath embroidery on the bodice and the skirt hem.  If tie on sleeves option added, there would be grommets along the shoulder line.  

Celtic Froca: There is traditional Celtic knotwork embroidered on the epaulets. Which have the added feature of keeping your shoulders from getting sunburned! Our embroidered, full-length Celtic Wench Chemise, makes a perfect match for this dress.  If tie on sleeves option added, this garment would no longer be reversible due to the placement of the shoulder epaulets and the lacing for the sleeves.
