Viking Tree Coat

For something a little different. We had a very Viking feel to our Tocal Tourney this year. I decided to join the fun and made my first viking outfit. I wanted to do a coat and I decided 100% accuracy was not necessary. I wanted something with a little wow factor. After looking at designs, I decided on something one of our local artists had come up with a for a banner design (used with their permission).

It's applique wool on wool. I decided to pick out some of the details with embroidery as the applique would've been too hard and less hardwearing. I'm going to do something for the front. Made with all op-shop fabric. Whole coat cost about $10.
