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!


  3. I plan to wear it to the Midsummers Eve celebration – hopefully I'll remember to get some pictures then 🙂


  4. Great teaser! I hate sewing, but I LOVE period clothing. The skirt is gorgeous.
