The Hedeby cap fragment.   It was recovered from the upper layers in a well, has been reasonably identified as part of a cap. The preserved section measures 15cm x 32cms. The cap was probably in use for a long time, as the fragment is very worn on both sides.

The preserved parts of the shirt.
The "Viborg" shirt, found during the excavations carried out in 1984/85 of the town of Viborg Søndersø, Denmark.   Careful conservation revealed that this was a linen shirt, preserved largely intact due to favourable (anaerobic) conditions in the soil. This garment remains the only shirt from the Viking period found in Scandinavia or Europe in such good condition.

Viking women: Clothing: Aprondress (smokkr)
Køstrup smokkr,  details of pleating  One end of the smokkr fragment had been pleated with tiny pleats, 2-3 mm deep and 3 mm wide. The pleated part is currently approximately 7.6 cm long. The longest pleat is torn 4.3 cm from the top of the smokkr, so we don't know whether the fabric only was pleated near the chest, or if the pleats ran further down.
