Traditional Greek Costume

As a child I was given several dolls dressed in traditional Greek national costume.  Again the colours are vibrant, lots of red and incorporating detailed embroidery.  I remember a series of Greek costume themed stamps came out in the 70s and visiting the Benaki Folk Museum in Athens several times.  I really wanted an outfit of my own, but I expect my family thought I would grow out of it too quickly when I was little.  I should make my own, even though it is too late to make it for my dowry!
