Here we go
This is the top part of my bunad, it even has the ribbon attached to it still.
It is made from wool, and is sown and embroidered by my own mother.
OK, I had to move it to a brighter room, with a whiter door to hang it on... not easy to take close up photos without flash... as you can see the skirt part of the dress is folded.. we call that plissè...
And here's a close up of the chest embroidery
And even closer
Now I have attached the apron, that has A LOT of embroidery on it.. this is the top part
and this is the bottom part
here are some close up photos of the skirt/apron...
Now on to the back
even the belt has decor
some close up pictures of the belt....
and some from the back
it was hard to keep the camera steady... so some pictures are a bit blurry....
this is a pocket... that is sown on to a silver locket... this sits on the waist line of the dress, and is a smart thing to keep money or a camera in...
ON to the silver
this piece is worn in the neck part of the shirt... I didn't have my shirt around, it is white linen, and has the same embroideries as the dress.. only it's all white.This next one is big, and sits on the chest part
and we have cuffs and earrings to match
I found this picture of a girl modeling the dress, and as you can see, she has the shirt and the special shoes as well... I forgot to take photos of the shoes.
