the patteren is a mix of different finds - if i had to do it again, i would change a few things, but the main idea is that the dress is made in 6 lanes + four gores, the top is baset on the tunic (fragment 8-93 A+B) from haithabau, the sleves are regualrfittet sleeves, the deatail around the neckline is just inspiration from the small figurins we have found lately / the neckline silk is padded thouh, like the mammen cuffs)
