laila.JPG (63819 bytes)This is my self in my Romeriksbunad. Picture taken on Christmas Eve 1999. The first time I used it! This model is called L46. Since I did not get one for my confirmation, I started saving money, and one beautiful day my dream about a Romeriksbunad came through! This green color is rare.

The picture was taken on Hege's confirmation.

Thank you to Vera for lending me the picture!

More about the Romeriksbunad L46

In 1937 the work on another Romeriksbunad started. It was Romerike Ungdomsforbund in collaboration with Borghild Tranum Røer and Karoline Grunde that created this bunad.

It was an old horse-blanket found in Enebakk that gave the idea to this bunad. It had beautiful embroideries.

The bodice is more like a waistcoat, a copy of an old jacket used by Margrete Norum (born about 1781) from Sørum. The base for the bonnet is a bonnet from Sørum (around 1770) The bunad was completed in 1946.

This bunad is made in the colors green (as mine), blue-green or red. It can also be made with red bodice/blue-green skirt. The embroideries in golden yellow, made with different types of yarn.
