Chatelaine F  Lady of Gallows Hill

#victorianfebruary Day27: "Tradition".
Living tradition in Telemark, Norway:
Folk costumes worn in the 1880's or 1890's.
The man is wearing a "gråtrøye" (grey jacket) with black breeches, both made from homespun. His daughter is wearing a "beltestakk" (belt skirt) in a finer woolen quality. The beltestakk may be ca. 4,5 m up to 5,5 m wide, with a broad border made from homespun covered with velvet: that makes a heavy skirt, too heavy for the tiny bodice attached to it, so the weight is carried by the long, broad belt, wound tightly around the waist +÷three times.

Many Norwegian brides are wearing bunad for their wedding instead of a white gown. Most bunads are colourful or dark - or especially made in red for the occasion.
The Lundebybunad, however, is made in white as well as in black (or dark blue). (See my last post.)
The costume is made of wool in the traditional shape worn in some regions of eastern Norway in the 1800's. Floral rococo inspired woolen embroideries. Shirt made of linen or cotton, with "nuperelle" (tatting) trimmings. Silver sølje, beltestøler & purse locker (see detail).
Designed by artist Alf Lundeby, who made the first bunad as a birthday gift for a friend.
Sewn by Bunadstuggu.

Purse with rose motif embroidered with tiny, tiny glass beads. Silver locker & chain. There has originally been a beaded frinch at the bottom. Such purses, or "chatelaine purses", were fashionable in the Victorian era.

Never knew there were so many floral boots to find in 2018, until I searched on google...
These are my favourite, made by Michal Negrin, Canada - @michal_negrin_canada .
Black leather beautifully decorated with rose printed velvet and jewellery.

Victorian embroidered silk & suede boot.
Made by F. Pinet, Paris, ca.1885.
Definite flirting potential, as this was an age when the skirts were long and just a glimpse of an ankle was risqué.

Embroidered stockings made of homespun, a tradition from medieval times - still in daily use in the 1960's in Tinn, Telemark, Norway. Now these stockings seem to be fashionable again, together with the "dufsesko" (fringe shoes), when wearing the bunad (folk costume).
