Antique Croatian costume from Banat, SLAVIC folk antique outfit L - XL
Gorgeous antique Romanian Croatian complete costume from Karasova Banat. It contains 2 pieces:



Extremely hard to find, gorgeous Romanian / Croatian dress from Banat, hand embroidered with mainly white - green - blue - brown thread on fine commercial cotton fabric. The embroideries are tinny and delicate and splendid hand done. The dress have museum value and it is hand made most probably in between 1900 - 1950.



The commercial linen used on Romanian costumes at the beginning of the 20th century was a sign of the social status because it was imported and expensive. The peasants, the ordinary people from Romania worn before WWI and WWII only clothes hand made on hand loomed in households linen.



The dress is originated from Banat folkloric region of Romania and it is worn of the ethnic Croatians living here.



The dress have a low waist and it is pleated at the back. It is a RETRO style dress.



Size L or may be XL but please check the measurements



Measurements:



shoulder + sleeve measured from the neckline: 70 cm or 27. 55 inches



around chest: 136 cm or 53. 5 inches



around waist: 132 cm or 52 inches



dress length: 126 cm or 49. 6 inches



Handmade in between: 1900 - 1940 because after the WWII the people of Romania was very poor and the costumes are made on a cheaper fabric, not on this fine imported old type.



Condition: excellent condition, I was not able to find a flaw. The embroidery is gorgeous, tinny but the thread is slightly discolored due to the dress age.



The upper part of the dress and the lower part of the dress are most probably from DIFFERENT eras because they are slightly different. The collar around neck is not as old as the dress but this is normal for a dress of this age.



The dress is washed, clean and ready to be used. Wash the dress with cold water and mild detergent.



For a dress like this, a woman from the past spent months and months of hand work. She stitched on it her dreams, her emotions, her love, her pride.



2. A wrap skirt hand woven in mainly black wool with green wool thread also. It is a rectangular entire piece which will be fixed around your waist with a needle and the belt.
