Antique RARE Hungarian Kalotaszeg costume blouse from Transylvania size XS/S

Antique RARE Hungarian Kalotaszeg costume blouse from Transylvania size XS/S
Antique blouse hand embroidered with black woolen thread around the cuffs and tunic collar and vertical lines from under armpits to the lower hem. It is hand embroidered with black woolen thread on blue azure dyed at home cotton fabric. In some villages from Kalotaszeg region was worn only blue shirts. The blouse is more than 60 years old.



Extremely scarce blouse.



Condition: nice antique condition with the following flaws: the seams on the cuffs are discolored differently, thread from different batches was probably used. All black stitches are gray now except for one of the cuffs. There are 2 - 3 more blue spots, probably as the paint was printed differently. 2 - 3 small repairs, with the same thread as the shirt. It is hemmed by us.



The blouse is washed, clean and ready to be used. But it must be washed separately because the black embroidery will slightly bleed. Probably not so much as it bleed when I washed it first but still I recommend dry clean it or immediately dry it in sunshine if it is washed by hand.



All those antique blouses from Kalotaszeg / Kalata area are hand embroidered with the same material which bleed in water but with a proper care: mild detergent, cold water, in last water add vinegar which fix the color and dry it immediately, the blouse is not affected, the white of the cotton fabric remain clean.



Measurements: blouses length: 57 cm or 22. 44 inches



around chest: 130 cm or 51. 18 inches



from the tunic collar to under armpits the blouse have 22 cm or 8. 66 inches (check my photos for details).



It will fit to sizes: XS / S because if even it has a lot of fabric around chest, you have to take into consideration that from the neck to the under armpit it is 22 cm or 8. 66 inches. It is still wearable for a M size but it is not very comfortable to wear under armpits and it small around neck.

The collar if closed: 33 cm or 13 inches

The cuffs: 22 cm or 8. 66 inches



Condition: good condition with traces of the wear described above.



Overall the blouse is very scarce, beautiful and it can be displayed as a last Mohican of a beautiful culture of Transylvania.
