Tamosaitiene wove and sewed this costume as a copy of a costume that had been woven in independent Lithuania between the two world wars. Unfortunately the original was damaged and partially burned. The original had belonged to Elvyra Pleckaityte Idzeliene.  All elements were available to be photographed with the exception of the crown.  Multi-coloured with dominant dark red.
