11th century Norman (England + France as far as the fashion trends go) overdress.
Material is dark greenish-brown wool and the dress is cut on one piece and has seams on the side. Handmade and suprisingly easy to make since I only had to sew two seams from wrist to hemline. I originally planned long sleeves but the fabric did not co-operate at all so I settled for shorter and more practical sleeves in the end.
The dress is purposedly shorter than the underdress and is shown here without the embroidery that will go to the hemline, wrists and around the neck.
I used about 3 metres of wool fabric to do this dress. I'm rather pleased of how this turned out and hope to finish the embroidery in time to use this at Turku medieval market, with a veil or cap of course since my extremely short summer hairstyle is not medieval at all.
