This wonderful antique ribbon applique cropped vest is from Slovakia. It would have been originally part of a traditional folk costume called kroj. It is made from a vibrant green brocade fabric with a number of different trims - metallic, sequins etc.. It closes with a metallic button and has a lovely hand pleated detail at the back. I like the way they used contrasting yellow thread to hand stitch the button hole. This garment is fully lined. Please see measurements below:

Chest - 20" (51 cm)
Length - 17" (43 cm) taken from the side neck point
Armhole - 8 1/2" (21 cm)

It is in very good vintage condition. With some light staining on the pink ribbon and the interior lining. There are areas of missing sequins as shown in the photo. It is a wonderful piece that would make a great addition to any ethnic dress collection but it is sturdy enough to wear. It looks fab with a simple tank top and a pair of jeans.
