I do historical costuming, it’s in fact what I’m studying professionally. ;) This is my short sleeved Norse ensemble that I made for a hot weather event on Cape Cod. They probably wouldn’t have worn short-sleeves, but…it was 90. I needed lightweight, washable and possibly expendable for the underdress. I do have nicer long sleeve tunic dresses, but they didn’t get worn at Vinland Raids!
I’ve since…spruced up the dress over the course of the past couple of years so I’ve added more pictures of the embellishment I’ve done since I made it initially. A ton of handwork, but totally worth it. The beads and brooches also received an upgrade.
The blue baldric I’m wearing is not a pouch, it’s my man-at-arms baldric in the SCA with favors attached to it. :)
Rust wool, cotton broadcloth. Woven trim. Pattern for the apron dress can be found here: http://www.silverdor.org/viking/vikingad.html
