Romanian layering. Natural dyes. Lace. The Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Romanian folk costume has remained relatively unchanged and continues to be worn for festival occasions. The basic model for women consists of an embroidered blouse and skirt, belt, head scarf, and often a vest or jacket

Do you think I could make something like this?  The skirt would be easy, the sash would be easy, the shirt not so much.

Love this Ukrainian costume (granted not Russian, it is close)
