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