long sleeve and long pants.

stood out was wool, and fine linen which was used for shirts and leggings.

another one in longer wool, with narrow and tight sleeves with a belt

The women also wore two tunics, one inside with sleeves
narrow, and another longer to the feet with wide sleeves; on top of that they could
wear a cape or a mantle and it was common to use a veil that covered the
