My needle is working its way through
yards and yards of beautiful wool fabric.
The chalk guidelines are pretty easy to follow,
but I have to say the overall instructions
are pretty limited.
I believe it is expected to join a class
and get hands on explanations.
However, some of us live a litte bit off the map
for local classes,
and for that reason
has to figure it out ourselves.
This is my second "Nordlandsbunad".
I embroidered the first one
about 15 - 16 years ago.
A traditional Norwegian outfit,
used for special occasions
like weddings, Christmas,
independence day etc.
I hope to have the dress-part done soon,
next up is the shirt, apron and the assembling.
I will probably share more pictures later
Da var mormor igang med bunad
til konfirmasjon, våren 2013.
