Description

The long-sleeved white blouse has no collar, but a "V" slit at the front or back. The body of the blouse hangs loosely at the bottom. The sleeves also hang loosely at the ends. There is one row of textured embroidery on the sleeves depicting flowers and leaves in red.

It was intended to be worn with embroidered skirt (2007.7032 ) as part of a Slavonia style outfit worn in the eastern part of Croatia.
