Vendel Project Update

After months of dithering about fabric choices, I finally have fabric for both the underdress and the overdress of my planned Vendel outfit. The white fabric will be for the underdress and the blue fabric for the overdress. Both are 100% wool. I will wear one of my wool shawls (both brown) with the outfit--hopefully pinned with a disc-on-bow brooch, if I can get one.

Here is a picture of the two fabrics together. The blue is a little less bright than shown, but the color is otherwise pretty accurate. Click on the image to get a large close-up that really shows the weave of the blue fabric. Now I have to decide where to go next--tunic cutting or tablet weaving.
