The costume of a rich Birka сitizen 2th half of X century Based on graves bj 856 and 865. Tunik sewn of thin woolen cloth (diamond twill of type W10 according to Inga Hägg), clasped with small round gildet brooch. Apron made of thickest diamond twil cloth dyed with madder and decorated with narrow pattern-woven silk border.
I really love how narrow her apron dress is, and how her under dress has a deeper slit and a layer underneath. Though I will need to slit my apron dress up the side, for ease of mobility in wheelchair.
