I’m excited to start sharing some of my research!
My journey started in the best of ways, with other fellow SCAdians: http://vikinganswerlady.com/
The Viking Answer Lady has an awesome page, and introduced me to many great jumping off points!
I’ve noticed a lot of talk on what Vikings wore, and am curious about the smocked front being shown by many re-enactors. Why do we think there is pleating on Viking apron dresses? I found the words “Kostrup Viking Apron Dress,” on Pinterest- and started searching from there. This is a fantastic research paper that I am eager to learn more about! http://urd.priv.no/viking/smokkr.html
Color! I’m the worst at choosing fabric, so I’ve been looking into appropriate dyes. This page is where I started researching. It’s great to read what other people have learned. It’s definitely helping me choose my next fabric purchase. Perhaps one day I’ll dye my own. https://sites.google.com/site/zoemcdonell/naturaldyeing
