Folk Costume with White Coiffe
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY IVETA HLAVINOVA
Cross stitch designer Iveta Hlavinova loves folk art, and costumes in particular. Here she shows us an example of the beautiful traditional costume still worn in many part of central Europe and the Alps.
This cross stitch design, and like pending Folk costume with red scarf, depicts a summer folk dress, this one with a butterfly-shaped head dress. The white cotton blouse has beribboned short sleevesand its collar is embroidered with tiny red hearts. The young lady is wearing a laced bodice and a large black belt. The most beautiful part of her costume is a an amazing pleated silk apron, with large flower motifs. Notice how the designer skillfully placed those motifs around the skirt to emphasize its bell shape).
Creative Poppy says:
If you're feeling creative, why not pick your very own colors for the bodice and the apron, they can easily be substituted with your own choice of embroidery floss colors.
