Mid-19th-century pelerine fichus. Very delicate and pretty. These are from The Centraal Museum in the Netherlands.
The collar on the left dates between 1825-1875. It's made from embroidered cambric or batiste, a lightweight closely-woven white linen or cotton fabric.
And the embroidered tulle collar on the right dates between 1830-1835.
Post here any info connected to the national costumes and traditional clothing, regardless of the particular country. You can also compare different costumes here or clothing traditions of different nations. Any general questions about folk clothing are welcomed
