i have my 1st item... a pair of braies done... i just have to hem and add a drawstring... i handstiched the whole thing... and i can say... my handsewing is not the best... but it is sturdy and won't come apart soon... pictures to follow... the braies are based on the Thorsberg trousers (pre-"viking" but considered a good source - as there are very few whole trousers found from the period.

my wife gave me Medieval Garments Reconstructed: Norse Clothing Patterns for my birthday... i will be doing one of the simple tunics as my undershirt... i need to cut it out before we leave on vacation

here is a line drawing of the pants found at thorsberg

i will also be doing my trousers from this example... as the braies turned out so well
