1940s Embroidered Hungarian Dress

Love this early bohemian feel Hungarian embroidered piece that is really fabulous and quite special. You often see blouses but to see an entire dress is a much rarer thing. It is a lovely combination of red and black yarn stitching on light cotton base. The shoulder has extensive stitching so that it has a ruched and gathered feel and the embroidered patterns run in bold panels down each arm and through the dress. A second pattern in a white yarn adds a nice compliment and secondary pattern. The embroidery work looks like it is a combination of hand and machine work. The top can be worn on or off the shoulder and the skirt has three tiers all set atop one another. Its a super, unusual and pretty piece that is in great condition! Item# D440
