Olga Peasant Dress


Colour: Black Cotton

The Olga Peasant Dress in black is a loose style gathered by shirring at the waist and sleeve cuffs.  It has light gathering on front and back yoke and ties at the neck with a delicate rouleau tie.  It is made from a lightweight translucent black cotton with shimmering and delicate embroidered topstitch around the neck and yoke and hem.  

The shirring and topstitch on this dress, in blue, cerise, emerald greed and yellow is inspired by the the vivid colour embroidery on Eastern European traditional dress.  The dress is a contemporary celebration of the bohemian allure of the traditional folk dress worn throughout the many different cultures throughout Eastern Europe.
