Flickr Favorites : Traditional Costume Walcheren, The Netherlands


Today in the Flickr Favourites we descend even more along the North Sea coast until we reach the island of Walcheren in the province of Zeeland. The costume from Walcheren is colourful and girly with deep cut jackets and bodices underneath; it has a white lace cap with a tail for the little girls and a small fitting white lace cap for women. The latter cap is held on the head by a visible ear-iron. In some area's of Walcheren (around the city of Middelburg) the women keep their girl cap with the tail.

For more flickr favourites see ArtMind's blog.

Ik kwam via Pinterest op je blog.
Ik verzamel alles wat met Zeeuwse klederdracht te maken heeft, en de fot's die jij hier gezet hebt, heb ik nog nooit gezien.
Neem een kijkje op mijn blog/ http://ateljee-dekraal.blogspot.nl

Ik ga er vanuit dat je nog Nederlands kan?
