Klappenrock instructions. The Hedeby ‘Klappenrock’:A Viking Age Cross-over Jacket Peter Beatson This is my design for a short crossover style jacket from Viking Hedeby (Haithabu).
We made it for VIKINGS, an exhibition at the Australian National Maritime Museum in 2005-2006. I'm wearing it on our front page (sewing was by Hugh Griffiths - nice work Hugh).It is made of wool twill with raised nap (similar to duffel coat fabric), with a lining which could be a patchwork of wool offcuts, and trimmed with strips of very wooly fabric, brushed up to resemble fur.If you are hunting for Klappenrock patterns, then you will probably already know some of the how's, why's and when's. Maybe one day I will write more to explain how I deduced this pattern from these fragments - but in the mean time you will simply have to trust me - every detail does have a reason!

The jacket is loosely based on the cross over coat worn in some of the dancing man depictions as well as various other stone carving and artifacts. I started out making a couple of sketches. I’m terrible at drawing, but I like to get my ideas out on paper so I can work out some of the detail and get the garment firmly fixed in my brain. Viking Embroidery.

As I've mentioned earlier, my daughter has recently decided that she would like to wear Viking Era clothing. In putting together her wardrobe, I decided that she should have a warm, outer layer for winter. Some quick research led me to the caftan. Carolyn Priest-Dorman (Mistress ThoraSharptooth, in the SCA) defines the woman's caftan as, "The outermost layer of garb, it's a long-sleeved long coat which was pinned together at about the solar plexus with a large brooch; it ... was heavily ornamented," A Quick and Dirty Guide to Viking Women's Garb in the 9th and 10th Centuries.
Pattern: Although entire pieces of clothing were not found in the Birka, Sweden excavations, which cover the 9th and 10th Centuries, archaeologists were able to gain a lot of knowledge about several different tunic-style garments such as smocks, tunics, and coats. Motif: Kaftans. The dancing figures from the Sutton Hoo plaques, wearing the warrior jackets and strange helmets Most Saxons and Vikings wore the standard woollen overtunics that we all know and love, however this was not a universal style.
This article will examine the evidence we have for four different styles of coats- the early Germanic “warrior jacket”, the two cuts of Eastern Viking kaftans and finally the female coat. Obviously kaftans aren’t appropriate for all DAS characters. The warrior jacket was primarily popular before our period; the two kaftans are distinctively Eastern so should probably be used to draw attention to particular ethnicities or as a sign of having travelled in the Rus lands; and the female coat may never have even existed.
