The guides at Moster

By spotogspindel | July 13, 2014

It´s already been some years ago that I designed the work uniforms for the guides at Moster. Based on a late medieval silhouette, the dresses are sewn in matka silk, which is a scrap-silk, very comfortable to wear. The belts have a text from the old church-bell, and old catholic prayer of “Ave Maria…”


The guides work a lot, because every now and then I have to make them new dresses, and this summer I´ve made three new ones. Below is a belt in progress. All the letters are freestyle machine-embroidered onto water-soluble fabric, before appliquéd onto to printed fabric.


I´m so happy to be working with these wonderful women, filled with knowledge about our local history. And they make a great viking-stew too! 🙂
