This dress is a mini version of the adult trossfrau dress on this site, made right after in 2019. This dress is based on Lansknecht woodcuts of trossfrau (ladies in the tross) from 1520-1530s ( “Landsknecht Woodcuts: Kriegsvolker im Zeitalter der Landsknechte” and woodcut images on Pinterest board).
It is a similar construction to the adult version on this site; however, I created a band in the skirt with slashes showing a white linen layer underneath. There is a tutorial on Whilja’s Corner showing the method I used for slashing. Initially, I did not attach the wool slashes to the linen, and I had to rework that when it filled up with dirt after a dusty event. I also reworked the trim on the bodice while I reworked the other dress in late 2019. At that time, I also added a black band to the very bottom to account for vertical growth.
