So, that's how many yards of fabric for an apron?

The Fiber Arts and Needleworkers' Guild is a gathering of folks to share
their mutual interest in all things related to the Fiber Arts. This first
meeting is an open project night and discussion of future group activities,
classes, and workshops. Please bring anything that you are working on currently,
or any project with which you might need help or input.
We will be starting Viking tunics and Hangeroks (aprons). These tunics are
unisex, so gentlemen, you can bring your fabric if you wish to make one.
Supplies needed are: the same amount of fabric that you would use for a tee
tunic (3-4 yards) of linen, linen-look blends, wool, etc.; pins; chalk;
scissors, thread; measuring tape; any trim that is suitable for Viking clothing.
For the hangerok, the amount of fabric will be approximately 1 1/2 times your
bust measurement and trim or yarn for the straps. Anyone who doesn't wish to
make a Viking tunic or hangerok, please feel free to come anyway--just bring
what ever you're working on, or pitch in to help someone else. Please
download a copy of whatever you are wanting to make from the websites that I sent
to the list. They are:
_Viking Apron Dress by Vigdís_
_Viking / Norse Underdress_
For the needle cases, please bring any suitable fabric scraps that are large
enough to cover a needle case, plastic canvas, yarn, ribbon, or trim scraps
that you might have lying around. Also, if you have any odd or interesting
buttons that aren't being used for anything else, bring those, too. I have
made up a couple of prototypes so that you can see what they look like. If
anyone wants to get fancy and bead or embroider a couple to give away to
whomever presides over Lughnasad court, that would be great. I have tons of beads
and pearls here at the house.
Wearing garb is not required--it is easier to wear loose modern clothes.
