It is closed on shoulders with tie strings.



The ample skirt is gathered up on waistband which is closed with tie strings around waist. The blouse is decorated with beautiful open work, blue hand embroideries around cuff and on chest. The skirt is decorated with similar kind of embroideries around lower hem.



It is an antique blouse made probably at the beginning of the years 1900. All those antique blouses had a different cut compared with the actual women sizes.

The blouse will fit to sizes XXS - XS - S the smallest sizes in adult sizes. In order to make it larger you may replace the under armpit gussets.





The skirt is very large and it is gathered on waistband. It is embroidered around the lower hem with blue hand embroideries. I closed the skirt at the back for taking pictures but normally the skirt is closed in front because the closure is covered by apron.
