The Rainmaker by VendelRus The Rainmaker by VendelRus
Here is another shot of Hervor posing on a rock (she does that very well). I'm not really sure what she is thinking in this pic. Sometimes here mind wanders of. I love to watch her during those moments.

Below are info about the dress. Unless you are a viking fanatic skip this =)

She is wearing a linen underdress (not visible here) based on finds from Birka. The woolen tunic dress is based on the finnish find in the female grave 56 at Luistiari in Eura. The woolen dog tooth pattern hanging dress is based on a find from the harbour at Haithabu (Hedeby). The Eura tunic dress is decorated with linen tablet braids. Her tablet braided belt is made from wool. Hanging from the belt is a simple wooden spoon and a tarsoly style bag based on finds from Lund in Sweden. She is also wearing a woolen naalbinding hat. The shoes are based on a find from Jorvik (York). The tortoise brooch is based on a find from 11th centurey finnish grave. The beads on the necklace are all made from finds. The stick is local.

If you want a grown up costume, just scale up all the clothes.

Could you help me with the patterns?
I did some research but since my norwegian/finnish/sewdish is not very good, I did not come very far.

That something I like also when I watch kids, wondering about what they see in the world and think when they see it.

Me to. Kids see the world very different then we do. They can make astonishingly clever conclusions about the world.

The whole attire is very beautiful. Thanks for posting the specifics, i can search in depth and make my own authentic outfit for an upcoming Viking LARP we'll be making here in Croatia (I know, weird to have a Viking LARP in southern Europe but it's a project name. We still ahven't figured out a good one :P) Hopefully I'll draw on your works for inspiration.

Still the cutest Viking ever. =D

Thanks for posting this :)

I like the choice of materials.
I wish I had a source for such materials.

Material choices for clothing in the US is much harder to find unless you are in a metro area like NYC, where much fashion work is done but is so expensive there.

I have a friend who is a weaver.  She's going to be fascinated by your postings, as am I.  Your daughter is growing.  I can't say more lovely because she's already lovely, but one day she's going to be a Nordic heartbreaker, and your fellow Vikings will fall at her feet.  Heck, they probably do already.

Well, she really enjoy this, but she does not make such a big deal of it. She can see a guy dressed as a knight on TV and she will be all exited about the sword and what not. I'd tell her that she stumbles around swords and armor all day and don't seem to get that worked up about it. For her the "viking life" is just another part of life, a fun part, but still just life.

Kids....they are amazing =)
