Flashback Friday: Queen Margrethe I of Denmark, Norway and Sweden's dress

 I saw this dress on Pinterest and decided I wanted to try to make it.

It based on a reconstruction of a dress that was worn in the 14th Century by Queen Margrethe I of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.  You can find photos of the dress here.

It took a couple of tries to get the pattern right, but the whole dress is knitted in one piece from the front to the back.  I didn't have an idea on how to do her veil until I got Knitivity by Fiona Goble for Christmas.  I sewed up the bottom part of the veil.

The Green Underskirt is Machine Knitted.  Her belt is crochet with embroidery floss.

Yarns Used: Red Heart Gold, Bright Green and Bernart Baby Softee White
