Making A Simple Smokkr (Norse Apron Dress) – A Hedeby Reinterpretation
I will be demonstrating THL Emer ingen ui Aidan’s interpretation, based on their research, of a smokkr (Norse apron dress) based on the Haithabu/Hedeby find. This interpretation has: one cut, three seams, gores built in, and a few inches of scrap left over. It is remarkably easy and fabric efficient. If you’d like to make, or get started on, a pattern for one (or make one) please bring 2 yards of fabric (a twin bed sheet works also), a scissors (preferably a fabric scissors to make your life easier), measuring tape, fabric marker, and pins. (Optional: needle and thread). No sewing experience is necessary. There is no class fee. There will be handouts and worksheets available.
