Transylvanian Saxon Dress: Young Couple



This is what a Transylvania Saxons dress looks like- on both the man and the woman.  This style is often hand embroidered and made for the couple around the time of their confirmation into the Lutheran Church.  These would be worn on Sundays and special events
This is a married couple so the woman wears a cap which is embroidered delicately.
Though this is a younger couple, the older women would wear this as well, but would also wear a handkerchief around the cap. The day wear was different and not as intricate.
