Antique Romanian dress from Carbunari, BANAT size S/M

Antique Romanian dress from Carbunari, BANAT size S/M
Old Romanian traditional costume dress from western Transylvania, BANAT folkoric region / Carbunari region.



The dress display hand embroideries on sleeves, on front of the blouse, around the lower hem of the skirt with black, blue and brown cotton thread. The lower hem of the skirt is bordered with wide hand made lace. Also the sleeves are decorated with crocheted lace.



The blouse and the skirt are from the same era, most probably in between 1900 - 1950.



Condition: nice with the note that the chest, on the right side of the dress, starting from the vertical row of embroidery until under armpits, the owner added a different fabric compared with the rest of the dress. The fabric is the same colour with the rest of the dress but is different on texture, is thinner. I tried to capture this flaw as best as I could, check all the photos for detail. The price reflect this flaw, and represent the cost of the skirt alone.

This is an antique day by day dress from Banat region, Carbunari subzone.



Clean and ready to be worn.



Will fit to sizes XS, S or S - M but check the measurements.



Measurements of the dress:



under armpit to under armpit: 60 cm or 23. 6 inches.



around chest: 120 cm or 47. 24 inches.



around waist: 122 cm or 48 inches



Length of the dress 96 cm or 38 inches



No tear or repair beside the flaw mentioned above. The dress is hand sewn and hand embroidered on hand woven fabric. The waist line was connected by machine because when we found the dress it was broken around waist line. The sleeves are 3/4 long sleeves.





It is very heavy and thick as majority of the Transylvanian dresses are. It is a day by day ethnic dress
