More about the Solør/Odal festive costume

This costume was finished summer 1940. A wedding dress from around 1860 gave inspiration to the shape on the dress. The creators decided on the blue color after studies in the archives in Hamar.

After WWII it was designed a jacket and a cape, and in the 1950s a reticule and a hat. The reticule has embroidery on front, and initials of the owner and year it was made on the back. 

The background is pictures of the "sølje" and the belt-"støl" for this costume.
