Establish the status of your portrayal with colour, and then dress it up or down with various accessories such as jewelry, belt, purse, shoes, garters, etc. Christian portrayals require the addition of some form of headwear. (Accessories not included).

The Early Medieval Gown is a well documented, generic early medieval style,  appropriate for the period 900-1300. The pattern based  on a number of extant garments from the 11th-13th C. which share similar patterning details.  It is recommended by Regia Anglorum and the Vikings for Anglo Saxon and Norman portrayals. It may be worn alone or layered with other garments.

The body is a generously sized "A" shape, flaring from the point of the shoulder to hem. The bottom width is increased with gores inserted from waist to hem. The sleeves are tapered to the wrist, and have a square gusset under the arm. The neckline is round and finished with a self-fabric facing. Sizing allows for floor length on most women.  Medium weight linen.
The pattern for our 'Hangeroc' or Viking Apron dress is extrapolated from the description of extant pieces from the Hedeby find. Close fitting around the bust, the skirt flares out below the waist.  Straps over the shoulder pin to the front creating an ‘apron’ effect. The hangeroc is available in either linen or wool, in stock sizes or made to order at additional cost.


All garments are made of high quality linen or wool, expertly cut and professionally sewn for a polished look and long life.  All are based on extant garments/fragments and/or period artwork and have no visible machine stitching.
