♛Details

•Highlights: a traditional garment set from Norway that would have been most likely worn with a long-sleeved cotton blouse and matching waist-bag, along with silver jewelry and belt (blouse is our prop and not included); fab pointed bust details; full skirt; matching felt bonnet with hand-beaded wintry details; there are no other older ones like this out there, or remotely priced as nicely (a single example of a similar cap ALONE is found priced nearly as much as we are asking for the set!); came from the original family's estate

•Colors: red, cream, mint, black -- plaid for bodice, a stripe for the skirt

•Fabric(s): a sturdy woven cotton for bodice, a twill-woven cotton skirt that's similar to denim in weight/feel, wool felt cap adorned with glass beads, rickrack, velvet trim

•Lined: bodice lined in cream muslin-type cotton

•Closures: front metal hooks/eyes

•Designer/Labels: no

Any accessories or belts shown in photos are prop pieces and not included unless mentioned.
