Antique Romanian dress on marquisette, hand embroidered Sibiu dress - size M - L
Antique hand embroidered Romanian dress from Sibiu. The dress is hand embroidered on marquisette fabric, a very expensive fabric (a combination of silk and cotton) used for making the Romanian costumes in between 1900 - 1940. The marquisette is very light, sheer and draping silk - cotton fine fabric.



The black hand embroideries are extremely fine. The dress is also decorated with silk stripes applied in between the rows of hand stitched flowers.

Dated most probably in between 1900 - 1930, the era when the marquisette was in fashion for the Romanian costumes of the wealthy Romanians.



Flaws: the marquisette which is an extremely delicate fabric was broken on the back of the blouse. We repaired those tears and covered them with silky stripes similar with the original stripes displayed on the front of the dress and on the sleeves. Other 3 - 4 tears was repaired and covered with tinny hand embroidered flowers (2 on the chest, near the right under armpit) and 2 near the hem of the dress. There are other 5 - 8 tinny holes in marquisette which are not repaired but they are hardly noticeable.

The blouse and skirt was connected together by a swing machine.



Pros: a scarce dress, an antique one in good to very good condition taking into consideration the fabric which is extremely rare, expensive, delicate, fine and old.
