Getting ready for confirmation

Our neighbor has been working on a bunad for her daughter's confirmation. A bunad is a traditional costume of great importance in Norway, worn for special occasions. Many girls receive their bunads at age 14 when they are confirmed. Maggie taking confirmation classes but she won't get a bunad unfortunately. We haven't the skill that Elisabeth has with sewing, and having one made is an expensive endeavor. Confirmation is in the middle of next month, a very big day for Norwegian families. We haven't worked out yet how we'll be celebrating. But there will be cake.
