Viking Apron Dresses--My Interpretation of Geijer

This is more like what Professor Geijer meant, I believe.

What you're seeing under my left arm is actually a second overgarment, in light gray, wrapped so that the open side is hidden under the blue garment on top. There's a front view on the right, which looks rather like the "tube shaped" apron dress from one of my earlier posts. Both the blue and gray dresses are of linen and are handsewn, with handsewn linen straps. Both dresses are trimmed across the top with strips cut from an old table runner woven in Thailand with geometric motifs that resemble Viking period motifs.
