If you are looking for instructions on how to make patterns for Viking Age women’s clothing, you have come to the right place. Some of these are patterns I developed and some are patterns I found and liked.
Smokkr (apron-dress) patterns: there are many smokkr patterns available online, I have been particularly happy with a pattern that I developed based on the Hedeby find. My design has five panels with a seam at center-back (based on the probable position of the Hedeby smokkr fragment as published by Inga Hagg). My pattern is available here.
Serk (dress) patterns: there are two basic pattern that I use – a four panel dress with triangular gores (pattern here) or a two panel dress with side gores (here is a nice pattern I found on the web).
