Pattern printed in black ink on green wool. For folk costume …


The printed fabric, reconstruction sketch and ribbons / fabric that should belong to the national costume.


The sketch and printed fabric lengths.

A few years ago I reconstructed this national costume fabric for an old national costume from Jølster. When you try to reconstruct a pattern from a garment, it is not certain that you have the entire pattern. And maybe you do not find the report either. Then you have to imagine what is in between … These fabrics with black print on wool is found used in different parts of folk dresses.
