To prevent me from overheating at yet another warm viking event. I decided to make myself a sleeveless tunic. The event was on sunday and I started working on the tunic on wednesday. It had to be finished by Saturday, because I was celebrating my birhday that day.
I know that it is higly debated whether or not viking women wore sleeveless tunics. There are some references to sleeveless tunics as clothing for slaves and they are often thought to be made of unbleached fabric. This tunic was made of yellow greenish linnen fabric that was lying in our fabric stash.
On my birthday we where in Museum Dorestad, Wijk bij Duurstede. Here are some pictures
