Som dere sikkert vet så har jeg gjort to forsøk på å rekonstruere Køstrupkjolen. I dag har Hilde ...

Hilde Thunems k�strupkjole

The front of the dress worn by "Britt" showing pleats between the brooches as well as in the back.  Apparently it was inspired by the Kostrup find.

New harness dress (hangerok) and chemise (Viking Average) - Based on Hedeby with narrow front piece and two pieces on the sides that meet at a back seam. Longer at back than front.

My Hedeby dress in woad dyed twill is finished.  Handsewn with waxed linen thread. I love the way the double side panels ended up.  Here seen together with a York cap in wool, an apron dress and my new bag based on the wooden Birka handles. The drinking vessel is also Birka.

Hilde Thunem's apron dress, or "smokkr," as some people believe it was called during the Viking age, based upon the Køstrup, Denmark, find. Note that this dress is also made from multiple pieces like the Hedeby-based dresses, but it has additional shaping from tiny pleats at the center front (the Køstrup piece was pleated). It's also worth noting that the pleats on this dress extend lower than on most recreations based upon the Køstrup find.

I really love how narrow her apron dress is, and how her under dress has a deeper slit and a layer underneath.

Swedish viking done right (not just standard apron dress + plastic beads and nothing else!) This is my goal for my garb.
