Hand applique

Thursday, May 7, 2009


Just to show you what I am working on these days.... These pieces are going to be my new bunad liv. Bunad is our traditional Norwegian costume, and this is the top on mine. The bunads are all different and show which part of Norway you are from. Mine is called the Nord- Østerdals bunad. I inherited it from my great aunt many years ago, and it is quite worn, so I decided to make a new one, and just fix the skirt which is in better condition. This is quite time consuming since it is all sewn by hand, but I am really enjoying the process. So if I'm "Missing in blogging action" this is why....
I will try to post an update on my progress, I started this a couple of weeks ago so I just need to take some pictures...

  1. How very interesting. I am anxious to see you in costume!

  2. I can't wait to see your traditional costume! My grandparents are from Norway so I feel a connection there.

  3. Ser ut som du er godt i gang - lykke til med syinga. Jeg broderer bare enda....

  4. I think I remember seeing photos of you wearing it, or maybe it was another of your native costumes.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I really appreciate it!
