This smokkr (Norse apron dress) was designed by The Honorable Lady Emer ingen ui Aidan’s and is based on her research of the Haithabu/Hedeby find. This interpretation has: one cut, three seams, gores built in, and a few inches of scrap left over. It is a remarkably easy design and very fabric efficient. When I make this smokkr I end up with only a few square inches of fabric waste.

You may at some point hear the words “sumptuary laws.” Sumptuary laws are laws that were put in place during the later medieval and renaissance period to govern what people could and could not wear, often this was based on social class. SCA Kingdoms do have sumptuary laws.
