Viking Dress Solveig for Children, red/wine red
This loose cut dress is made from durable cotton canvas and comes with a cloth belt. Colour constrasting details make it
stand out from the crowd.
The split neck can be worn open or closed with a fibula or brooch. Center and side gores
of fabric) inserted into the rectangular front and back panels give the hem an adequate flare. The underams are fitted with
gussets (square pieces of fabric inserted into the seams). The strong canvas fabric makes for a sturdy, heavy dress which is
thus best suited for the spring or autumn season.
The cut of this dress is based on archeological finds dating back to the 9th and 10th centuries. The female garb of the time
was characterized by long dresses with patterns mainly consisting of rectangular and triangular pieces of fabric sewn together,
in order to waste as little material as possible.
Such garment patterns are clearly recognizable on textile and clothing fragments found in Skjoldehamn
. The dress is therefore ideal for an authentic portrayal of a Viking child.
