Viking Love

I simply loved this authentic pattern. My Granddaughters Little friend was the hit of Viking Days, in Viking Alberta

Viking Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

Excellent! I have been researching Viking clothing to make my own pattern; I found yours and thought "Why re-invent the wheel?" It's historically accurate and straightforward to use. Thank-you so much.

Viking Dress

Love it. But hard to see the sewing detail with the dark fabric you have used. I figured it out and this is what I created.

lovely pattern

The results of the pattern look good and fit well on my AG doll. I plan on tweaking it a little bit and making a second one to fit a Journey Girl doll, as my daughter has requested one in a outfit that matches hers. Having made adult-sized Viking outfits, I found a couple of the construction suggestions a little different (e.g., cutting the squares for the underarm gussets in half to sew them in on each side and then joining them together along the long seam), but because of the difference between fitting something to a doll vs. a human, it made sense. I added a Dublin cap, draped on the doll, and a pair of turnshoes based on an online tutorial to the ensemble. I think the pattern would be improved with a cap or headscarf pattern, since that was considered a pretty essential garment at the time.

Fantastic Dress

At first seeing 50 pages, I was a bit overwhelmed but as I read through the pattern, I realized there were plenty of pictures from how to lay out the pattern on the material to how to pin it together to putting in the eyelets for closures. Clear, well written pattern.
