blue wool norse apron dress

A few days before our annual SCA Daffodil Tournament I decided to make a new wool apron dress for my Norse garb.

Every good sewing project starts with the right tools and materials – good supervision is a bonus!

Dress pieces marked out on folded blue wool fabric. I used Vigdis’ Viking Apron Dress layout.

I decided to serge the seams because the stiffness of the wool did not lend itself to flat felled seams.

After sewing I ended up removing the two back half-gores as they didn’t drape well.

I sewed on some tablet weaving left over from a belt I made last summer.
