Old Romanian shepherd dress, antique SIBIU - Valcea dress 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 with " ciocanele ", black stripes made of black cloth sewn on the blouse.



Beautiful peasant shepherds dress from Valcea - Sibiu area decorated with black hand embroideries and black cloth stripes. The measurements of the dress are:



length: 107 cm or 42. 1 inches.



around chest: 124 cm or 48. 8 inches

around waist: 116 cm or 45. 66 inches

Good armhole size for M or M/L size. The only small measure is around neck, completely closed it is 34 cm or 13. 4 inches. It is adjustable with tie strings so it will fit to us 35 cm or 13. 8 inches around neck.



So because the dress is small around neck I recommend it only for M size.
