Turns out there is a very brief summary of Vendel-period female dress, including a reconstruction drawing.

If I've translated, and understood things correctly, are they saying that they needed sharper, finer pins because they were piercing the fabric instead of an arrangement used in the Viking Age where the pin passed through loops?

Tutankhamun’s wardrobe

Tutankhamun Tuesdays Public Lecture Program
Tuesday 26 Jul 2011, 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Dr Gillian Bowen

Join Dr Gillian Bowen in an exploration of Ancient Egyptian attire.

The tomb of Tutankhamun has yielded the largest collection of clothes and footwear that we have from ancient Egypt. This talk will examine items of his wardrobe to show the range of clothes from underwear to formal attire and shoes, discuss the textile industry and range of materials used.

Dr Gillian Bowen is the Senior lecturer in Archaeology and Ancient History, Monash University. Gillian studies textiles and footwear from Monash's excavations in Dakhleh Oasis, Egypt, and the textile industry on the basis of documents found there. She also conducts excavations in Dakhleh Oasis, with a focus upon early Christian sites.

Proudly supported by University of Melbourne, Programs Partner.

Please note the Tutankhamun exhibition is not open on Tuesday evenings.

Dress in Iceland from the Settlement Period on (it looks like). [PDF, in Icelandic]

An article by Elsa E. Guðjónsson about woman's dress from the 16th century on. Click on 'myndaskrá' for the full captions of the pictures, including the manuscripts the images are from.
AM 147, 4to is where these hung over Icelanders are from, the rest are here (here is a guy with a bird, this looks like a woman, and here, and here). AM 345 doesn't seem to be online, but it seems to be on page ii of Women in Old Norse Society. I suspect it is the group of three women on page four of the PDF.

They have two photos, one is the same as the one on Cynthia Virtues' page, but the second I can't tell on my tiny eeePC monitor if it is a really good drawing or a photograph.

As usual, am having trouble finding any dating for things other than 'Joseon', which really doesn't narrow things down, but the pictures are pretty anyway.

Katrin Kania, the archaeologist who studied the gown left a comment on my livejournal, and has posted on her own blog about the dress in English.

First up, a photo I would love to know more about. Do any knitters or Tudor-clothing fans recognise it?

Edit: Thanks [livejournal.com profile] mmcnealy and [livejournal.com profile] jillwheezul.
If you go to http://www.museumoflondonprints.com/ and search for 'knitted' you get nice photos, and some other knitted things.

Second, das Bußgewand der heiligen Elisabeth [the penance-garment of St. Elisabeth]

and http://www.spurensuche-elisabeth-limburg.de/bussgewandkorr.jpg
I found out about it through the Surviving Garments Database, looking through the publication list. It's 'Garment No.: 648' and is dated to the 13th century.

Saule Urbanviciene "Survivals of Paganism in 14th-17th century Graves in Lithuania" in Michael Müller-Wille [ed] Rom und Byzanz im Norden: Mission und Glaubenswechsel im Ostseeraum während des 8.-14. Jährhunderts (Franz Steiner Verlag, 1997)

is really, really exciting. If only because most of the references in her bibliography I've seen, and she once again mentions Heldt's costume book of mysteriousness.

So, here's what I've found when it comes to the Heldt'schen Trachtenbuch:

It's referenced here, here, here, here[PDF] and here, and while everyone can agree on the author and date, nobody can agree on what the book is called.

It is in the Lipperheidische Kostümbibliothek, of the Kunstbibliothek, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin Berlin. I'm having trouble finding any actual reference to anything by a 16th century Heldt in their catalogue, so I may just have to write to them.

Edit: Found this reference, to:
Ulinka Rublack "Clothing and cultural exchange in Renaissance Germany"
In: Robert Muchembled [ed] Cultural exchange in early modern Europe. Vol 4
(Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2006 - 2007) – ISBN 0-521-85553-5. pp. 258-288

The whole series looks really interesting though, I'll have to ILL the books. It's all a bit expensive to buy
