Amalia Kontogouni and Peseli Jackets

Amalia Jacket is a small densely embroidered 3/4 sleeved Jacket that closes in front under the breasts- This Jacket was worn by the Greek Queen Amalia. It is possible that this particular design came from Corfu. Since the Confucian Peseli jacket is almost identical in shape but has longer sleeves.It was worn over a dress called Kavadi, which had broad long sleeves and neck opening like the Entari, that ended in a very wide skirt. Under this was worn a short embroidered silk blouse. (Pharyah)
