My cousin Vilja posing in the national costume of Etelä-Pohjanmaa (Southern Ostrobothnia) region. Grandma made all of us female grandchildren the costumes when we were teens. Our costumes reflect the region where our maternal family is from, rather than the styles traditionally used in South & Central Finland where me and my cousins are from. The costume models are reconstructions of 18th century fashion. They are based on excavations and other sources in a given area.
