I drafted the pattern based on a medieval dress excavated in Greenland (Herjolfsnes 42). I had a few problem with the pattern but nothing that wasn’t manageable, like the armsceyes being too small, the side gores needing to be eased in to fit, that sort of thing. I also made the underdress (smock) with a pattern I drafted, and I wove the belt.
Herjolfsnes dress: 100% linen fabric, 100% wool bias tape, metallic trim, 2 hook&eyes, thread.
Smock: 100% linen fabric, 100% linen bias tape, thread.
Belt: wooden O-ring, wool yarn, cotton yarn.
drafting, sewing, weaving, modeling, photography, photo editing, by me.
Also modeled by Sarah.
