Viking Underdress

So here is my first Viking dress, at least that I made myself. This was really a test sewing. I wasn’t sure if I could get the pattern to work for me. I like how the dress turned out but it has the same problem as last time; where it rides up as you wear it eventually choking you. I was unsure of this color until I had it made up and now I really like it. It is 100% linen fabric. It was really fast to sew though. It took me 8 hrs, maybe. What I like about Viking dress is that there is a large amount of variation in style. Hopefully I can make a few more dresses before next years reenacting season. The second picture is it with the Apron Dress I was given. I think that it works, which is good because it means I don’t have to make a second Apron Dress.
