A small kaftan

Lars' mum-in-real-life, my sister in law :), made him some excellent Viking clothes. Together with some authentic shoes and a hat he looks everything a real Viking should look.

Next to the dark brown cloak he already has, I am making him this Rus Kaftan. Ssssht, don't say anything, he doesn't know yet ;) but I couldn't resist showing this to you now. It is a really thick wool and I am hand-sewing the hem with red linen thread.

You can see the gussets and the extra panels on the side to make the kaftan wider.
