Yey, it's a favorite topic for me, too. I think the illustrations are amazing, especially the photo of the silk front reconstruction from Pskov - lovely!

The whole "pleated" idea for the Pskov dress has been tantalizing to many, as it would provide a good solution for both how wide the dress is and also how badly the silk is pasted together. Taken together with the Koestrup finds, it would also provide a more unified view of the late-period apron dress. However, doesn't pleating leave very obvious punch-marks on the fabric, from the needles and threads used? But upon microscopic examination of the garment, not such traces have been found. The Russian archeologists were also looking for a logical explanation of how such a wide garment would have been worn, but didn't find any evidence to suggest pleating. I think Ms. Larsson is overstating again, but it's nice that she is at least considering the Pskov evidence, unlike many other researchers.
