This is a pic of my ex wife Kerstin in her new outfit.
Details are mostly Gotlandic. Her under garment is a line kirtle with white and red linen tablet braids. On top of that she is wearing a woolen herribone patterned dress and a diamond patterned woolen apron dress with woolen brown/green/white tablet braids. On her head she is wearing a woolen naalbinding cap. Jewelry and knife is for the most part of Goltandic origin.

I will post some close ups later on.

Ååh, jag älskar verkligen din frus hängselklänning förklädesklänning!! vet du om man kan köpa samma sort någonstans? Eller om din fru någon gång får lust att sälja denna, då är jag mycket intresserad *+*+***

välsignelser, Lyckeliv

Exfru :) I litteraturen kallas dom för hängselkjol eller ibland hängselklänning. Den typen av klänningar är ganska enkla att sy så du borde kunna göra det själv eller be någon bekant om hjälp. Det finns massor av mönster att hitta på nätet om du googlar. Jag tror dessvärre att Kerstin (exfru), precis som jag, inte gärna säljer sina kläder och helst håller pengar utanför intresset :)

Lycka till!

She has a great smile but can also be very angry if provoked. I've heard the hardness of the viking wives will grow smoother with age. I'm looking forward to retirement =)
