This listing is for a beautiful woman's folk costume from the Liptov region of central Slovakia, originating in one of three neighboring villages: Liptovska Luzna, Liptovska Osada, or Liptovske Revuce. The costume includes a blouse, apron, skirt, vest, bonnet, and belt. The blouse is embroidered with floral designs against a light blue background on the shoulders and has a handmade embroidered and crocheted collar. The cotton apron has traditional blueprint motifs, which are printed on both sides of the fabric. The vest features the traditional cut that is characteristic of this region and is decorated with various types of trim and lined with linen or hemp cloth. The bonnet is also decorated with floral embroidery and crochet lace trim on the front edge. Also included is a rare two-tone wool felt belt that wraps around the waist and ties in the back. I have provided some measurements above, but the costume has some flexibility in terms of sizing, and could be altered relatively easily to fit a smaller or larger size. The costume is in good condition overall with only minimal wear and aging as detailed above and shown in the photos. It would be a beautiful addition to any collection or cultural exhibit.
