Woman's Anglo Saxon dress

  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).
  The knives (one large and one small for eating) are replicas of a found from ca 12th century so they may not be period, but I like to wear them with the outfit, though.
