Wow, I’m surprised that it’s been five months since Norwegian Constitution Day. The sun isn’t shining nowadays, but time for some reminiscing.
This was my outfit this year. Since I don’t have a traditional Norwegian bunad, I make myself a fancy outfit each year. And this year, a jumpsuit is made instead of a dress.
I made a straight US size 10, but for my next make, I think a size 8 bodice would be more fitting. There was a built-in bra, but the bra itself was too big for my breast without some padding underneath. I could take it in, but the time didn’t stretch until I wore it on the day.
The pattern itself wasn’t so complicated as I feared. The boning of the bodices was a bit tricky, but it has always been tricky for me. Since my jumpsuit is made in a fabric with prints on I thought it ought to be best to break it with a belt. I’m very pleased with the pairing of the fabric and the pattern though. The stretch of the fabric was perfect.
My husband and I drove down south to our hometown and stayed at my in-laws. The day of celebration I went to my sisters to celebrate with my family and her in-laws. It was a beautiful day, the weather was perfect and my niece is as cute as ever.
