Sy en bunad (Sew a Nowegian national costume)



The process of sewing a bunad is a creative journey. Crafting a timeless festive attire that can be passed down through generations is both exciting and rewarding. One of the most cherished bunads is the 'beltestakk,' admired not just for its beauty but also for the endless variations it offers.

In 'Sew a Bunad,' Torgunn Andersen guides you through every step, from sewing and embroidering to assembling this iconic attire. Providing detailed, step-by-step instructions accompanied by both text and images, she also shares valuable advice on choosing silver accessories, dressing, as well as maintenance and care.

This book serves as an inspiring guide and support to embark on and complete your own bunad.

In this newly updated 2nd edition, the author meticulously followed the step-by-step instructions of the first edition while sewing a new bunad. The text has been revised to be even more pedagogical and now includes images of the new bunad, providing another variant of the 'beltestakk' to further inspire you!
