Desilava - A Bulgarian National Costume Doll

The doll is wearing a national costume. I have tried to be as precise as possible, using colours and dress from national costume books.

Desislava is wearing the national costume from the town of Godech in the Sofia Provence of Bulgaria. Godech was first mentioned in 1435 in the Ottoman's records. This costume is described as a Sukman costume. I have used the colours as researched, with an underskirt and a shorter over skirt.
