Romanian peasant dress from Sibiu folkloric region, hand embroidered vintage Romanian dress from Transylvania size M

A genuine hallmark of the shepherds in Carpathian Mountains, in between Sibiu and Valcea counties, the costume of this area has a well defined personality through the black and white contrast which the basic pieces display. The beauty and the elegance of the apparel aroused the admiration of the intelligentsia, who adopted this costume as as a national emblem at the beginning of the 20th century.



The female traditional blouse decorated with " umeras " and " sire "on the sleeve is thought to have originated in this area. This variant has the sleeve ending in " fodra " (flounce) and an ornament black stripes placed vertically on the sleeves and chest. between which the "sire ", rows with small flowers and leaves are hand sewn.



The measurements of the dress are:



length: 127 cm or 50 inches.



around chest: 140 cm or 55 inches



around hips: 120 cm or 47. 24 inches



Good condition, clean and nice. The black embroidery is slightly discolored due to the blouses age. There are two reparations of which, the larger one, of small coin size is captured in my photos. This is located on the right part of the chest. The other one is very small, impossible to be captured in my photos and it is located around the neck, covered by the smocked part of the neck.



The dress age: about 50 - 60 years old.
