The girl is the model from Bunadburet and I tried so hard to copy this Bunad.
Kiely is in front of the Manti Temple in Manti, Utah. The Temple was built by Norwegians. They were asked to build it and they only knew how to build ships, so they did. The story is that they built it as an upside-down ship. Maybe a bit like me making the Bunad.
I really have the apron and the embroidered hat and I'm working on the purse. Bunad shoes are in progress also. How fun to wear her ancestor's folk-wear. I'm looking forward to pictures of her in the costume. We were so excited when she tried it on we forgot to take a picture.
