Girdle

Around her waist Cess has a thin, leather girdle, tied, with one long piece hanging down.  The girdle is used to hang things from – a sword or rapier for men, daggers, eating knives in leather sheaths as Cess wears, leather pouches, small steel mirrors, sweet-smelling pommanders and so on.  They are also useful for tucking your skirts into when it is hot or the ground is very mucky.
