My viking clothing
Here I present to you my two very humble pieces of Viking clothing (approx. 10th century), loosely based on Birka findings. I don't own a pair of 'regular' brooches yet, so here I've used Penannular brooches to tie the apron dress together, I also usually hang strings of beads between them. I made the apron dress with four panels, the pattern was really easy to draft, it's basically four rectangular pieces with a slight trapezoid shape to allow more movement. I got the inspiration for that particular dress here, a swedish info-website on historical clothing. The tunic underneath is a very basic gored linen one. The apron dress reaches just beneath my calves.
I'm seriously considering adding brick-weaved band to the apron dress, because it is a little bit boring at this state :P
