The gown you see is my very first attempt at Viking anything. For the undergown, I sort of cheated and used something I already had. For the apron though..well, I agonized over that thing. A friend gave me the instructions that she uses for her aprons. They seemed very full and feminine to me and I really liked that a lot. Unfortunately, I can’t find the link for the exact directions I used but here’s a link for a very similar method: Norse Apron Dress.
Both the undergown and apron are made of linen. The brooches were a birthday gift from my sweet hubby, (sort of a hint to “get that apron done!”) and the beads were a gift from one of my Laurels. At the time I took this picture, I’d only embroidered the top of the apron but I’ve since embroidered the hem as well as a couple of seams on it. I plan on wearing it to a 12th night event so I’ll try to get some Viking Action shots!
