Viking event Archeon
This is, alas, the best picture of me with my new viking costume. In the picture I am sewing on the lovely tabletwoven trim. I was really warm this event, so I didn´t get to wear this set much. I mainly wore my linnen peplos (tube dress) costume.
The yellow apron/suspended dress has been entirely handsewn and I am very proud of myself ;-) I choose to make the later viking period tailored version as I think it is more flattering.
A lovely picture of our encampment from the back, my husband Gunnar and friend Aud are baking pancakes in the heat.
Here a picture of the front. We shared the spot with our old friends from Tjursläkter. Which was great fun, but sometimes a bit crowed.
