Handcrafted History

Historical and modern handcraft mixed with adventures

Old clothes and new dreams

1 Comment

So, I recently searched my computer to find some old I-know-they-should-be-here-somewere-photos (when I was young I had all photos in an actual box, fancy that…) on my viking age outfit. I found them, and a lot of other photos of moments not forgotten, but clearly from a time far far away. So I wanted to share some old but good clothes and pictures with you all, most of them now sold or given away to support new dreams. I like that clothes I have grown tired of can have new adventures with other people!

Both the black and red dress now has new owners, but they were really fancy together!

B has a loose overdress, I will show you that again a couple of years later in a coming post…

K in her viking garb during a Christmas market. Wearing the cloak over the hood makes all the warm air stay inside, and the wind outside.

3 layers of wool keeps you warm during springwinter time (yes, it´s called vårvinter in northen Sweden. That time of year when it’s warm and sunny during daytime, but real winter during the nights).

Look what a fancy photo! It’s more common for me to make funny faces or blink during photoshoots, but this one is really nice. A very chilly day with freezing winds, so I wore the red dress from the first picture, under a blue shortsleeved woolen dress with pinned-on sleeves and a hood.

All this photos made me realise I got lots of new inspiration for making new garb, and some pieces that are newly finished but not yet documented.
