Here are some photos of my Viking coat in progress. It’s not really a Viking coat according to all the patterns I’ve seen but it will keep me warm at events and it looks Viking-ish. It’s based on my bodice block that has been enlarged into a wedge shape and my German sleeves.
The wool is extremely thick (my new Ginghers could barely get through it) so I didn’t want to mess with gores. Also, it needs to be lined. The wool is very scratchy. The coat is nowhere near done. It’s just a work in progress.
