"On these..., who had the bodies of women, nature bestowed the souls of men"
Saxo Grammaticus (c. XII century)
Traditional T-shape linen tunic decorated with contrasting trim, exclusive braid and dyed hemp cord. Ancient costume silhouettes of northern soldiers and lady warriors did not differ much.
However, we tried to accentuate the beauty of the female figure, as much as viking clothing allows it with its free and floating cut. 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.
In ancient times not only clothes served to cover the body, protect from the weather and express social status, but also it served as a magical cover and talisman. Therefore, the ancient Scandinavians carefully decorated their costumes with lacing, embroidery and special decorative seams. It was especially important to “protect” all open sections - the hem, sleeves and collar - because it was believed that through these “gates” evil spirit could penetrate a person.
We paid special attention to this issue in our design. The neck and the sleeves are trimmed with a contrasting linen and narrow trim with traditional Scandinavian ornament. Bottom is also decorated with two rows of 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.

Would it be possible to make a custom order of this dress without trim and contrasting color additions?
The tunic cannot be made w/o trim and contrast accents, but we can suggest you making Viking Linen Undertunic Chemise “Eydis the Springdancer” of the same Blue linen as the Ingrid tunic.
I was curious if this tunic could be made to reach the ground. I have 2 of your dresses already that I LOVE and I'm waiting for the amazing Archeress Set and would love this. Thank you Your a very Talented team!!
Yes, the dress can be made longer, just give us the desired overall length (from the shoulder seam to the bottom hem). Please note this info in the comments to your order.
BEAUTIFL dress. I'm 5'9' is that to tall? Can this dress be worn for everyday wear?
Our fixed sizes are made for full height 5' 6" (168 cm), should fit fine 5' 5" – 5' 7" (165–170 cm). The actual length of the dresses is 58" (148 cm) long.You can always order a custom sized dress which will be made according to your full height.
I was wondering if this dress could be made with short sleeves? Thank you.
Basically, the tunic can be made with short sleeves, but it may require the change of the pattern. The original tunic`s sleeve is broad near the armhole and gets more narrow to the bottom, so if we just cut them, the sleeves may look weird.
Please can I ask... Can I buy a size 22(English) in this dress? Will it cost more for a larger size? Thank you. Carol
Our sizes are different from European, UK and US size systems, please check our size chart. According to our size chart seems like size 12 should fit you. You can also always order a custom size dress which will be made specially for you according to your actual measurements, to do so just switch to a "Custom size" tab, enter your measurements and choose the color preferred.
can this be made in other colours?
Yes, this tunic (custom size, made to order) can be made in in natural, brown, green, blue, black, orange, dark blue, yellow; and the accents can be made in brown, green, blue, black. Please note, that the main color of the tunic should differ from the color of the accents. If the preferred color combination satisfies these conditions - just mention it in a comment to your order.
Just received my dress- it is BEAUTIFULLY made- no question about it. The only small problem is it is a bit short for my 175cm (size 12)frame and the sleeves also a bit short (I have pretty small- average arm length) Just be wary if you are tall- you might want to get a custom fit to make sure the lengths suits you more. Would recommend though, its beautiful!
Many thanks for your feedback!

Hi. I am 5'6'' tall. How far will this dress come above my shoes. Will this be at the bottom of my ankle or near the top of my ankle? Perhaps it will be best to ask how long it is from the shoulder. Thank you. Rowena

I'm too old, but my step son may want her phone number!
Serious challenge for the young gentleman :)
This is absolutely beautiful! And my mother's name is ingrid - I'll have to point her towards this. :)
Can we buy the trim from you?
I'm sorry. After many discussions with a team we decided not to do this...
