Teaser

All this week I have been studying, and so – no time for sewing. I have been doing a little knitting in the evenings though. Since reports on schoolwork are mildly boring at best, here’s a teaser on the folk costume skirt and apron, taken last week.


The skirt is made of heavily fulled wool and the apron is linen (warp) and wool (weft), woven in a pattern typical of the area and time period. More info and pictures on them will come soon.

  2. I enjoyed reading about your pioneer clothing and seeing the photos and tips. Brings back many fond memories of youth pioneer treks!
