The Romanian blouse from Margau

La Blouse Roumaine Simona Moon

I am so excited to share these pictures with you guys!!!! Back in 2014, when I started embroidering my own traditional blouses, I feel in love with a traditional blouse from the area of Margau, in Transilvania. I never had the chance to try one out, just admiring it through pictures and dreaming that one day I will get my chance.

Well, that chance came today! One of the members of our group, Sezatoare Constanta, has bought 2 blouses from that area and she showed them to us! I got the chance to try them on myself and it was pure joy. I was like a little kid in a candy store.

For the first time in my life I was happy that I am so petite, the long blouse is a size S and the short one I think XS (not joking).

Both of them are authentic vintage blouses and most of the time you see them in Museums!
