Trying to find photos of the apron dress fragment from Heddeby, that apparently is in the Viking Museum.
Haven't found it yet, but have found these...

Since I love the whole idea of underarm gussets, even if I'm leery of them being on the Eura gown, I decided to sew my own version of the shirt from Manazan.
The fabric is a white and very pale pink plaid in soft linen, from my fabric stash, originally from Eliza Fabric in Sunshine.

It's such a pale pink that it isn't photographing properly, and from a distance it looks like a white tunic that was accidentally washed with from bright red fabric. It also isn't hemmed yet, because I haven't decided if I'm going to wear it underneath a Skjoldehamn outfit or not.

Photos! Updated! )
Have put up all the photos now.

Photos of the cloak:

I haven't woven the front edges yet, but here are some photos anyway.

I could have sworn I'd previously posted pictures of a statue, with a woman wearing a cloak held in place with a brooch, but I can't find it now. It was German or Scandinavian...

Anyway, picture 3 shows how the hem is pretty wavy after I threw it in the wash. I'm assuming this is because the wool trim and the wool fabric shrunk at different rates, and the trim wants to be straight while the curved hem of the cloak is stretchier.
The fourth photo is a close up, showing how my band weaving is bulky and really basic, compared to the machine-woven fabric.

Think [livejournal.com profile] aslan42 would mind if I ran away to Riga to meet well-dressed re-enactors?

I'll write a bit more about the over-layer, and my ideas, later.

After much fussing around with different sizes of beads, and bells, and shells, here are my attempts at the two necklaces from grave 94, Salaspils Laukskola:

There is an excessive number of photos under the cut. Sorry.

Look at my collegians, all grown up and wearing really fancy outfits!

(I'm the person with headwear. I'll put up more photos of me later.)

Oooh, and I found a photo of me wearing (basic) Finnish, and playing with a hat.

ETA: God only knows what I was doing, but here's a very dodgy attempt at Samgallian dress. At least the headband is OK (I do have the fake hair with coiled wire ends somewhere).

And this is the Greenland gown in action.

I figured out why the photos were blurry -- had the camera on the wrong setting.
