Antique hand embroidered on marquisette dress from Banat, very old Romanian peasant dress M/L

Antique hand embroidered Romanian blouse dress from Banat. The dress is hand embroidered on cotton cloth / fabric and these hand embroidered fabrics are applied by hand on marquisette, a very very expensive fabric (a combination of silk and cotton) used for making the Romanian costumes in between 1900 - 1940.

The black hand embroideries are extremely fine, intricate and typically for the Banat culture (a region from Western Transylvania).

The dress is decorated also with tinny metallic sequins of which many are lost. These sequins are found only on antique blouses or dresses and prove one more time the age of the dress.



Flaws: the marquisette which is an extremely delicate fabric was broken here and there. We repaired these tears putting a small piece of fabric under the tear, sewn over both of them (the piece of fabric and the broken fabric) and covering the reparation with small black flowers. . So everywhere you will see those flowers you have to know that there was a reparation.



We added the finest elastic around the waist but this can be removed easily.

Slightly used, wearable because of the reparations we did. Without the reparations the marquisette fabric is not washable because it is fragile and the tears will become larger and larger.

Size M/L with the following measurements:



length: 106 cm or 41. 732 inches

around chest 120 cm or 47. 24 inches

around hips 162 cm or 64 inches

Sleeves length from the neck to the lower hem: 70 cm or 27. 55 inches.

The dress is washed, repaired, wearable.

Age of the dress 100 - 120 years old. I guess that the hand embroideries applied by hand on this old marquisette fabric are at least of the dress age: 100 - 120 year old, even if no older.
