dress; trousers (clothing: outerwear)

Girl’s dress and trousers, non-matching set, an Uzbek practice. Both are machine-made; faux velvet and cotton. The fabrics are probably locally made in Russia and exported to Uzbekistan for making up at home. Girl’s dress with short sleeves, squared neck and a ‘v’ opening behind the neck. Patterned with green, pink, purple and read leaf motifs on black. A stitched-on card-label in Cyrillic needs translation. The trousers, worn under the dress, are patterned in bold flower motifs in purple, red and orange with green foliage and stars on a black ground. Synthetic material. The legs are mounted on a plain, white cotton waistband hemmed to take a drawstring
