Vintage Adventures

Howdy! I'm a crafty gal living in the Golden State of California; all about vintage clothes, swing dancing, knitting, cooking, books
and adventures!

A bunad is a traditional Norwegian costume, with looks and designs varying throughout the different regions of Norway.
I looked up the design and sewed a bunad from the Finnmark region.. because that's where Hammerfest is and that is where my great-great-great-great grandfather came from!
At the time I had a phobia of sewing machines so this is all sewn by hand.
I wore this to the 2009 Vista Viking Festival.. GREAT fun!
I really need a sewing machine.. planning to find one on craigslist.
