Within the scope of the NESAT (Northern European Symposium for Archeological Textiles) from 22 to 16 May 2017 in Liberec, Czech Republic, three pieces of clothing reconstructed and tailored by Rachel Case and Marion McNealy were presented to a specialist audience at the Technical University of Liberec.

The three dresses, the originals of which date back to the 15th century, are a linen shirt and a blue woolen dress of a 3-4 year old girl and a "bra" with a sewn-on skirt for a very slim woman.
