awesome :D
do you have any patterns for that? Friend asked me for such costume but I'm not sure how to do it (I can sew don't worry ;)) cause I want it be as realistic as possible.

Sukienka i giezło na postawie tuniki z haithabu, fartuch luźno inspirowany znaleziskiem z tego samego miejsca. Jak poszukasz po nazwie miejsca znajdzie się tego sporo - akurat nie mam nic pod ręką żeby zalinkować.

Looks good to me. This must represent a wealthier Viking woman in certain ways, as linen wasn't inexpensive. At the same time, if she were really wealthy, there would be more jewelry visible.

As you might have guessed, my background includes a lot of historical study, some of it academic.

Yes, you're right.  
As you may see this was posted like 4 years ago, so it's not my current set ( fav.me/d5re5ca this is how it looks now).
I'm reenacting a crafter - weaver to be precise, but as far as weaving cloth was everyday work tablet weaving wasn't, and that's what I'm doing. Personally I prefer to wear higher quality clothes than to hang myself with tons of silver :)

As a weaver, that makes perfect sense. It displays the clothing to advantage without distracting from it. I happen to like linen, but I'm well aware that it's still not an inexpensive choice, and I rather doubt it ever will be.
