WYCINANKA: "Lowicz Dancer"
The costumes worn by the people of the Lowicz region of Poland are amazingly beautiful. You would see them worn by dancers for the most part these days. On a trip to Poland, you might be lucky to see a Baptism or Wedding where some of the people would dress in costume. At festivals, even the little children are dressed in these beautiful costumes. They are so colorful and outstanding. I once had the opportunity to wear the woman's outfit for a television show in Pennsylvania.
