Gown, Viking apron, (Hangeroc), wool, MADE TO ORDER

The pattern for our 'Hangeroc' or Viking Apron dress is extrapolated from the description of extant pieces from the Hedeby find. Garment is made up of 6 panels: 2 rectanglular center front and center back panels, plus tapered side pieces which match the description given for the Hedeby find (i.e. A 'funnel' shaped piece that is straight on one side, rectangular at the top and flaring out from where the waist is supposed to have been). Straps run over each shoulder and are pinned in place on the edge of the center front panel**. (Pins not provided)

**As shown, this garment DOES NOT conform to current Regia Anglorum and Vikings kit standards. To meet the standard the straps should be made of long loops over the shoulders and short loops at the front bridged by a turtle brooch. Please indicate that you prefer this option by noting 'LOOPS' in the comment section when you place your order.

Due to the cost and availability of high quality wool for this garment, wool hangerocs are only available made to measure (custom).
