I’m slowly starting my Herjolfsnäs-gown project. I’ve been doing lots of reading (in Danish!) in Else Östergårds book Som syet til jorden (Woven into earth) as well as searching the web.
- Cotehardies from Greenland Gowns
- A comparative study of extant garments relevant to East Denmark in the mid-to-late 14th Century
- The Ten-Gore Dress: Cotehardies from Herjolfsnes
- Woven into Earth by Else Östergård
On a side note, David Brown Book Co takes pre-orders for a new book by Östergård (with cowriters Anna Norgard and Lilli Fransen) called Medieval Garments Reconstructed: Norse Clothing Patterns. Looks interesting as is due to be published in December 2009.
I want to start a new tablet weaving project but inspiration seems to have left me. Do you have any tips for tablet weaving I can do with my dyed wool yarns?
