Re: Bog dresses

Poster: genie@vt.edu (Genie Powell)

That would depend on the style of the "bog dress."  I've heard of several
interpretations of the term.  
I have a sleeveless quasi-coathardie-thing  made out of an old white flannel
sheet that keeps me warm and can be worn under a lot of garb.
Are you planning on wearing viking/saxon garb?
You could wear the bog dress and then cover it with a heavy weight tube dress.
It's the viking dress that's basically a huge sheet sewn into a tube and
pinned at the shoulders with brooches.  If you line it and throw a spiff
necklace on, it looks rather stylish.  And if it gets muddy, you simply
adjut the overfold so the tube comes only to your knees.
Just some suggestions.
