Hand embroidered blouse from Romania
This Romanian blouse was made in Romania in the end of the 1970s in a handcraft kolkhoz. It is made of hand-woven cotton gauze, completely sewed and embroidered by hand. It requires experience to embroider these elaborate patterns completely by hand with fine cross stitch on such a thin fabric. Each blouse part has been individually cleaned with a real hemstitch and then sewn by hand. This makes the blouses extremely long lasting, despite their light fabric. Between 200 and 400 working hours depending on the type and effort of embroidery were necessary to make such a blouse.
