Viking outfit for my daughter , part 2

The goal wasn't to make something historically perfect , just to have a close look that I will love.Making things in small size doesn't mean it doens't required time.As a first layer for the costume , I made a plain tunic.I used the technic with rectangle , triangle on the side and a gusset under the arm.I used a piece of leftover linen I already and other fabric  so I didn't have to buy anything.

The tunic , showing the shape and size of it. It was assembly by machine but the outside is entirely handsew.

Close-up of the neckline , handsew with a pale blue silk.The bottom and the wrist are made the same way , blanket stitches.

The over dress ,  an apron dress  made of burgundy wool flannel.The cut is the same as the one I have and was made by my friend Gwenyver.Assembly by machine but not visible on the outside.You can see more of the shape on this site I used.

Again , the bottom is handsew using a blanket stitches.I like it because it's easy and look nice.I used the same pink silk for the hat.

I was running out of time to sew the shoulder strap so I sew them quickly doing an X to fix it.The strap as you can see are not entirely finish.It was wear only one time for halloween and it look wonderfull.Because halloween was a monday , my daugther didn't have the chance to wear it at the day care.

Type of costume : viking for a little girl under 2 years old
Fabrics: linen and wool flannel
Threads : Alyce Schroth silk ,  Renaissance wool , polyester for the machine
Handsew for the outside , assembly by machine
Time to realize: a few hours to cut and assembly , hours for the handsew which I did before going to the bed.So at the end it wasn't quick but I did follow a good rhythm of progression.
