SOLD Bygdemonster * £22 €33 $55 Including Shipping

Published in 1930 this extremely rare and very difficult to obtain Swedish softback pattern book in very good condition has 8 A4 pages of charted Dalarna patterns for Bridegrooms' shirts including 4 hearts and an alphabet. The shirts were traditionally embroidered by the bride or her mother. Few of these shirts survive as it was also the custom that a married man would be buried in his bridegroom's shirt...
