    Description

    This dress made from indigo coloured wool (chemically dyed) is reconstructed based on the finds from Herjolfsnes, Greenland. These finds date back to the late medieval times (up to 1430) and they follow European fashion. This dress uses the pattern from find D10584 and the characteristic M-shaped method for setting the middle gussets from other finds.

    The Herjolfsnes dress consists of front and back panels with two-part middle and side gussets in the skirt part. The sleeves are made from one piece with underarm gussets and curved sleeve head. The side gussets reach up to the armhole. All theses features in the pattern allow to have a narrow fit at the upper body and arms while still maintaining a wide skirt.

    In the front side gussets additionally there are pocket slits. Originally they were meant to give access to a belt with items underneath the dress. But for our modern preferences there are pocket bags added.

    The dress is closed at the collar and tight fitting sleeves by handmade fabric buttons made from the dress’ wool fabric.

    The visible seams are done by hand. The invisible seams are machine sewn. On request all seams can be done by hand or machine.
