Blue Damask Tunic

I recently made this tunic and coif for my pottery teacher, Master Hroar. The coif is white linen with black decorative stitching. The tunic is made of blue damask fabric that he had stashed away. The construction is true to Viking period patterning. He is a well-to-do merchant and would have had access to brocades, though this particular pattern is slightly anachronistic for that specific period. I added some blue linen and white/gold trim to the edges. I think the color is perfect for him!
