"On these..., who had the bodies of women, nature bestowed the souls of men"

Saxo Grammaticus (c. XII century)

“Ingrid the Hearthkeeper” Set

Viking dress and apron costume

Making this costume we tried to accentuate the beauty of the female figure, as much as viking clothing allows it with its free and floating cut.

Tunic. Traditional T-shape linen tunic decorated with contrasting trim, exclusive braid and dyed hemp cord. Tunic is quite spacious at biceps and narrowed to wrist, sleeves make it possible to be engaged in any daily chores. Wide skirt reaches the ankle and does not "sweep" the floor, does not limit the step and emphasizes feminine silhouette.

So does the apron. An apron is a signature Viking's women garment. Viking's apron is a sleeveless overdress worn with a pair of oval brooches. We used general idea of Hedeby harbour finding reconstruction and Shelagh Lewins illustrations but slightly improved the pattern making it a bit more complicated in favor of better look and fit.

We paid special attention to decorations and trims. The neck and the sleeves of the tunic are trimmed with a contrasting linen fabric and narrow trim with traditional Scandinavian ornament. Bottoms of both tunic and apron are also decorated with trim, specially designed for this costume, contrasting fabrics and dyed jute cord.

All these details and accents will make your character expressive and unique and will make you feel a dozen centuries younger.

Please note, that fibulas are not included.

  • Jess 18 of September 2018:

    Hi Armstreet, I have a question about the 'Ingrid the Hearthkeeper' dress and apron set. I have measured myself and am a comfortable size 4 by your size charts, and am wondering if the dress and apron could be made in that size without me supplying all the additional measurements on the order page? Or is that option only available if they are purchased separately? Thanks.

    ArmStreet Team answered 18 of September 2018:

    Dear Jess! Please simply leave a comment to your order that size 4 is needed and we will ship the set in size 4 for you.

  • Sarah 28 of January 2017:

    Hi Armstreet Is there a way to have the Viking "Ingrid the Hearthkeeper" Apron and Dress special without being limited to those 2 colours of blue and green? Or is the special just for the 2 colours? Many Thanks Sarah

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Sure, it is possible, just mention the preferred colour in the comments to your order.

  • Jacqueline DuChateau 10 of December 2016:

    I just bought this combo and it's amazing! One question (and I feel ignorant for asking) but how do you attach the fibula? Thanks! Jacquie

    ArmStreet team answered :

    The fibulas should be attached to the shoulder straps, you should first tie the straps to the special loops and then just fasten the fibulas to the straps. You don`t need to use them to attack the straps.

  • Natasja Rose 18 of November 2016:

  • Sharon Allgeier 21 of September 2016:

    Is custom sizing available and what would the cost difference be? I do have my measurements.... Thank you!

    ArmStreet team answered :

    We make plus size clothes, please let us know your measurements (full height, chest, waist, hips, biceps). Most likely we`ll need to ask you to pay some extra as plus sizes require more fabric and work.

  • robyn 03 of September 2016:

    ArmStreet team answered :

    The dress can be made in Burgundy linen with Green Apron, please mention it in the comments to your order.

  • Anne 21 of July 2016:

    Hello! It looks like she's wearing a chemise with this dress and apron, is it the "Viking Linen Undertunic Chemise “Eydis the Springdancer”"?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    The chemise the model is wearing is slightly different from “Eydis the Springdancer”, it's not listed on the website yet. The chemise "Eydis the Springdancer" will fit this set very good too, as the difference is imperceptible.

  • jolien 07 of July 2016:

    I was wondering what colours of brown would the dress or apron come in or is only the one shade of dark brown. Does the trim on the dress only come in the green and blue?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Yes, now we have just one shade of brown available, here's the swatch so you could see it better. As for the trim, this one comes only in green and blue, but it can be change to some of our other trims, please let us know which trim do you like.

  • Sinead 13 of October 2015:

    Well now I know what I'll be spending my paychecks on, but I've never been so excited at the prospect of not having money.

  • Luna Dove 24 of September 2015:

    In my experience linen wrinkles badly and needs to be ironed at the dry cleaners. Is this linen like that? If so what about making it in cotton that does not wrinkle badly? I so love the outfit; however do not like to iron

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Sorry, this costume cannot be made in cotton. Linen crumples easily, since it's 100% organic. Here are some tips to reduce wrinkles:

    • Use 40°C (104°F) water for wash in gentle/delicate mode
    • Extraction (spinning) in gentle/delicate mode to simplify the ironing
    • Remove the clothes immediately, when the last spin cycle of the washing machine finishes
    • Do not use hot drying
    • Line or flat drying is recommended
    • Steam ironing is recommended to undo wrinkling

  • Steve Kelly 07 of August 2015:

    Can the apron be made without the lacing and without the split in the back?

    ArmStreet team answered 11 of August 2015:

    Sorry, the apron cannot be made without the slit and lacing.

  • tove jannecke wiik 30 of July 2015:

    Can i get the apron longer in the back down to the tunic trim? Is it also possible to order it in other colors too? Both apron and tunic? The trim is then not needed if that's the only reason why not! The one you have in picture is very beautiful, there are just a few options in the color selection, that makes it difficult to order cause colors are not flattering on me Kind regards Tove Jannecke

    ArmStreet team answered 31 of July 2015:

    The apron can be made longer for $25 extra, but over the entire circumference. Can not be made longer in the back and shorter in front, sorry.

    The set can be made in some different colors, but please note the following:

    • main color of the tunic should differ from the accents on the apron;
    • accents can be made in brown, green, blue, black;
    • tunic can be made in natural, brown, green, blue, black, orange, dark blue, yellow;
    • apron can be made in brown, green, blue, black, orange, dark blue, yellow.
