Gown, Herjolfsnes ''G39'', 14th c.


I have had my gown for about a year. I must say that I absolutely love it. It's very comfortable, probably because I like the mid-weight linen.

However, I do have a complaint. The dress was too big on me, and I had to change some things. I am 5'3" tall and was just too long. The buttons reached just below my hips, not just below the waist (seen in the promo-picture). And the rest of the material, about 3-4in dragged on the floor. I wished that they asked for height when I had it "Made to Order".

So I starting fixing the dress. I tried taking apart the dress. I was hitting walls so I pieced it back together. I was only able to hem the gown, which fixed the dragging material. But, I could not fix the top area because of the before mentioned walls.

But on a happier note it's defects are not that noticeable when wearing a belt or wearing my sleeved surcoat.

I will purchase from here again. :)
