Reconstruction of the Køstrup smokkr.  There are several reconstructions in Danish museums. When comparing them to the archaeological evidence one can see that they tend to have too large pleats. Also, they pleat the entire front of the smokkr, instead of just a small piece.    The decorations are significantly simpler than what has been described by the archaeologists. Noone have reconstructed the pattern of the tablet woven band. Instead they use a less complex pattern.

Really, really excellent and detailed article about norse women's clothing (the 'smokkr' is the word she uses for the overdress, which I love) including a discussion of adaptations and wear during pregnancy and while nursing.

This apron dress has pleats in the front in addition to the sewn-down pleats shown here in the back.  Note that the pleats in back are deep but narrow--like the pleats on the Kostrup find and several similar Norwegian ones.  The blog on which it appears is in Danish; the blogger's name (and I'm assuming the photograph shows her in a dress she made) is Britt.
