Inspiration - A simple Saxon outfit--two tunic dresses of different lengths, worn together.

Tight-sleeved underdress, loose-sleeved overdress, both with unfussy and versatile trim.

Century This is a very rich outfit for the Viking time as it uses a lot of the expensive purple dye, and the time consuming embroidery is done in silk.

Woman's Anglo Saxon dress (from the origional website:) This dress is entirely hand sewn. The underdress is linen, the overdress is woolen. The belt is tablet wowen in linen. Maybe it should not be wrapped twice around the waist, but I like it this way very much. The pouch is of wool, with an embroidered beast from the Bayeaux tapestry (woolen threads in natural colors and hibiscus).

As with men's clothing, it was common to wear a wool dress over a linen underdress (shift or chemise), but women's fashions had a little more variation through time. Tenth and eleventh century Norse and Saxon dresses tended to be looser fit, bloused over the belt, and sometimes an extra overdress was worn, knee-length with shorter or unfitted sleeves. Norman styles were closer fit, so side gores should come only to the waist.
