Over Dresses
'''All Periods'''
For an extra layer of warmth an over-dress can be wornover a dress. These are always worn under the head covering, never over it.
A woollen over-dress is similar to a dress but has loose sleeves that usually end just before the wrist exposing the rucked sleeves of the dress beneathalthough occasional examples can end mid forearm. During certain periods the [[Mid]] Period (AD 980-1040) a version of the over-dress was worn that had a shorter skirt so as to expose the hem of the dress.  Occasionally women are shown wearing an Over Dress with no visible dress beneath, although it is likely that they are still wearing an [[Under Shift]]. [[POOR]] Women are often depicted wearing a short mid-shin length Over Dress in this fashion.
