Before you order clothes:
- Think about what kind of clothes you want, and try to give me as much details as possible (pictures are nice) and also, what you will use them for (reenactment, stage, market fair, winter camping.) This way I can give you a better offer.
What can I offer You?
- All fabrics will be prewashed/shrinked (except silk, velvet etc) before sewing, and I only use high quality fabrics, threads and details. The hand seams are made with historical techniques.
- Instructions for caring and washing your new garment is provided. No chemicals are used during the making, which means a healthy garment.
- Machinemade inside seams and hand stitched hems, details and visible trims.
- All hand stitched garments using historical techniques.
- Pattern constructions are based on viking/medieval finds, but gores/seams may be adjusted due to your measures and to cut costs. Garments based purely on archeological finds upon request.
