It's very interesting seeing a viking apron dress made from patterned fabric

Viking costume with apron dress by Katla jarnkona. Note the tattersall plaid linen and the inserted gores with embroidered motifs.

Annika Madejska's latest Viking outfit.  Her blog entry makes it clear that the tablet weaving at the top of her front cloth and apron dress is woven onto the edge of the fabric, a technique found at Hogom and other early finds.

fitted Hedeby-style apron-dress by Cathy Raymond Based on Peter Beatson's pattern inspired by the Hedeby fragment, made and worn by Cathy. She suspects that no Viking woman would ever have worn an apron dress that was this tight, and that Beatson's pattern works better on slender figures that do not have a pronounced bust or hipline.

The front and back panel ideas didn't originate with Thor Ewing in "Viking Clothing," but may have with a guy called Flemming Bau in the 1980s. He proposed that the suspended dress was open in the front, but a longer backcloth/train could be attached to the back from the brooches, along with a front panel to cover the front.
