A couple of days ago while rearranging my wardrobe I got an interesting idea. Throughout the years I have collected many pieces of clothing from various parts of the world.
Some I bought myself others I acquired through family. Each and everyone represents a unique piece of work representing the culture and the tradition of the countries they originated from.
The first in the series is this Romanian blouse. As the name suggests it came from Romania (Europe) and was brought as a gift to my mother in law when she was a young girl. When I was a young bride she gave it to me knowing my love for needle point and embroidery and I am eternally happy and thankful about this gift.
The blouse is made of a handmade soft and transparent cotton showing traditional Romanian needle point pattern and style. It is quite big and comfortable. There are three embroidered columns at the center front divided by an intricate white pattern in silk yarn. At the back there are only a few scattered, blue embroidered diamonds.
The sleeves are also quite roomy and densely embroidered. They are tied by tassels.
Hope you enjoyed the post.
