The white underdress on this bunad has a gathered and flared homespun wool skirt with three black bands at the bottom. The black overdress is made of plain black homespun cloth in the front and tightly ribbed fabric in the back, with added green and red bands on the bottom. Woven and embroidered bands are at the waist and on the suspenders. There is a short green and black jacket with embroidered bands at the cuffs, bodice, and shoulders. The white-cotton blouse is gathered at the yoke and has lace at the collar and cuffs. The black knee-length stockings are hand-knit.
