In 1936 a body was found in a bog near Skold harbor (Skjoldehamn), on the Norwegian island of Andoya. Found with the skeleton were items including an undertunic, overtunic, pants, hood, hose, leg wrappings, shoes, braided belt, and a knife (only the handle survived). It appears they were wrapped in a checked fabric blanket and laid upon a reindeer skin. Dating from 995-1029 AD.
Superb description of the stitches on the Skjoldehamn hood by Raaness. (I translated the original from Norwegian to English.)
Hose based on finds from Haithabu
Love the two-coloured panels. Would want one with black side panels and a coloured centre panel. Plus woven trim across the top, bottom and bands. Viking woolen apron dress
Sidney Eileen's gorgeous seam treatment on a Viking linen apron dress. The thread on Facebook contains some other links to Viking-era embroidery patterns and techniques, some of which are quite lovely.
Suggested layout and construction of the Viking Haithabu hanging dress. G= offcuts that can be used to gore the skirt. When the side panel is placed with curved edge frontwards, the decorative cord marks a line down the side of the body. The triangular offcuts from shaping the side panels can be inserted in the rear seams at the lower edge to give a wider hem, resulting in total usage of the fabric.
