Viking outfit project cont. II

And ignore the damn shoes. Still haven't been able to acquire anything more period-friendly.

Also: according to Thor Ewing, spacious sleeves weren't uncommon in the Viking age.

If you're interested in making your own Varangian pants, I'd recommend first cutting a test pair out of some cheap fabric before using more expensive materials. Mine took well over 3m of (150 cm wide) linen.

This garment is more suitable for slim people to wear, because due to the copious folds the fabric bunches up below the waistline.

Not only is the garment you've created totally amazing but I love how you've presented it with a mixture of detail shots and construction notes, it gives a great sense of the complexity of the piece.
