Incredibly special early 20th century Romanian folk dress handmade in the Padureni, Transylvania. This exquisite dress is made from a heavy cotton fabric, woven by hand, and then painstakingly embroidered with an incredible level of detail. Each hugely voluminous sleeve has a large panel of solid embroidery, accented with shimmering metal spangles. The neckline has similar embroidery, with motifs continuing through the cuffs, skirt and hem. The dress has no closures, and slips on easily over the head.
Excellent condition, a few minor marks. Presents beautifully.
Wears beautifully slightly oversized as shown. Totally unpinned on model.
