Product Description

This is a woman’s stylized Polish folk jacket, not completely authentic but combining folk elements in an exceptionally pretty, pleasing way.

The background fabric is blue velveteen, adorned with braiding, metallic trim, sequins, beads, and buttons.

Long sleeves are also elaborately decorated, with white eyelet lace at wrists.

Closes with hooks and eyes: buttons are faux.

Lined in white cotton canvas. The decorations are hand sewn onto vest, with stitching visible on lining.

Very professional construction.

From the collection of Polish folk dance teacher and scholar Ada Dziewanowska.
