Czech Costume Design

While attending the National Polka Festival this year I decided to create a new costume for myself (and my father, husband and grandson) for next year’s festival. We took a lot of photos of the folks in costume so I would have something to reference when I got back home and started designing. In addition to the photos, I was able to secure a petticoat and a 42 year old wedding gown from my mother. I have removed the lace from the gown and will be bleaching it white to use on the costumes. Below are my reference photos.
