Young Women's Costume

A typical headdress included a little red cap (today only a flower), the shirt was the same as the one of a married woman, instead of the krožet (traditional homespun waistcoat) was the primetača (piece of clothing only covering breasts where it has white linen decoration, especially below the throat) with lace and embroidery, the white homespun oplećak (bodice), fastened at the front with the coloured kurdele (sg. kurdela, band), a white linen pleated skirt, a red wool apron, on the back the braided ječerma (type of jacket) made from dark blue homespun, on their feet white cotton socks and the opanci (sg. opanak, a type of tanned leather peasant folk moccasin) with thimbles.
