Saint’s day in Costeni, Lăpuș region

Chemises with yoke (cămașă cu platcă) made of white linen decorated with a narrow row of blue floral motifs on the edge of the yoke and collar. Lady in foreground also has rows of embroidery on the elbow (cămașă cu șire peste cot) and cuffs of her chemise, and is wearing a brown pieptar, decorated with red and green embroidery. Black skirts and black headscarves. Photo taken when we drove along an unmade road into Costeni, Lăpuș, on Sunday in August 1997 and came across a village celebration.
