Advent calendar 15 December 2017

Our fifteenth calendar post is a mended shirt. From Forsby church, Sweden.

Here we can see a close up on the patch. The patch is sewn on to the outside of the shirt. Both the patch and the shirt are made in linen.

The item dates to 1250- 1350 AD.

Now in collections of Historiska museet, Sweden
