Baroness Wynflaed aet Hamtunscire, Barony of Bergental
This dress pattern is based on the “Norman Tunic Dress” that can be found at Linen Garb. It can also be considered to be an “Anglo-Saxon”/Early Medieval underdress.
I have made apron dresses at unsuccessfully tried my hand at cotehardies in the past. (Sleeves are hard.) This dress represents my first fully successful attempt at creating functional sleeves.
The dress is fully hand sewn, and will be embellished with handwoven trim made by me, and the bottom hem will be hand stamped by me.
The stamping is questionable as to its accuracy for the Saxon/Norman time period. Stamping was used during the middle ages, but probably later in other parts of the world, such as India.
