Why do I love this look more than the elaborate dresses from the a Renaissance? Frontlace kirtle, pin on sleeves, chemise and simple head kerchief/cloth
hairstyles married Viking women would not wear their hair loose; free hair in girls was a sign of a maiden; long hair symbolized freedom while slaves/thralls kept short
"Arisaid" was the earliest form of women's dress in Scotland. Scythian-Celt connection: plaid
The dress on the left shows a good way to use a too-short dress. Long dresses aren't as easy to find, but a shorter one with a long skirt underneath can be a good look.
