Linen Dress and Apron “Ingrid the Hearthkeeper”
Trim decorated Viking outfit. When making this costume we tried to accentuate the beauty of the female figure, as much as viking clothing allows it with its free and floating cut.Tunic
: Traditional T-shape linen tunic decorated with contrasting trim, exclusive braid and dyed hemp cord. The Tunic's quite spacious at biceps and narrowed to wrist sleeves; make it possible to be engaged in any daily chores. Wide skirt reaches the ankle and does not "sweep" the floor, does not limit the step and emphasizes feminine silhouette.Apron:
An apron is a signature Viking's women garment. Viking's apron is a sleeveless overdress worn with a pair of oval brooches. We used the general idea of the Hedeby harbour finding reconstruction and the Shelagh Lewins illustrations, but slightly improved the pattern making it a bit more complicated in favor of better look and fit.
We paid special attention to decorations and trims. The neck and the sleeves of the tunic are trimmed with a contrasting linen fabric and narrow trim with traditional Scandinavian ornament. Bottoms of both tunic and apron are also decorated with trim, specially designed for this costume, contrasting fabrics and dyed jute cord. All these details and accents will make your character expressive and unique and will make you feel a dozen centuries younger.
Apron Brooches are sold separately.Size Chart
