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.
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.
