You might remember that a while back I made an embroidered “Viking”-style apron panel. I’m still not entirely convinced of this style, nor do I think that this kind of embroidery is totally appropriate for Viking Age, but in the SCA these panel-aprons are abundant, and I wanted another way to show off my championship as Montengarde’s Emerald Rose (since I’m also wearing the Avacal Championship regalia), so I decided with a piece of gifted green wool, that I’d make an apron panel decorated with a green flower.
I love the big collar that seems to define the look of the Byzantine costumes, so it was high on my list of things to make for this costume. I really wanted to use the gorgeous trim that I bought at Bhatia’s Cloth House a while ago, but I couldn’t use it as-is.
In this post I’ll write about the collar, the wrist cuffs, and some of the other accessories that are part of this costume.
