The Amalia costume is the most traditional of all Greek girl costumes - it is considered the women's national costume of Greece. The costume was designated by the first queen of Greece, Queen Amalia. A long sleeve jacket is worn with the skirt and a hat with a long cord.


This girl's costume consists of
(1) velvet jacket with velcro closing at front and embroidered trimming throughout
(2) velcro fez (hat)
(3) white satin polyester long sleeve shirt with decorative front, detailed extended lace cuffs and a tie closing at back neck.
(4) light blue satin polyester skirt with elastic waist


 This outfit is imported from Greece and generally kept in stock ready to ship from our NJ location.    This traditional dancing costume is a favorite amongst dancing troupes and churches. 


Sizing:  The costume runs true to size.  We recommend to size to the shirt of the Amalia costume as the shirt is the tightest fit of the whole outfit.  If your child is broad shouldered, you can size up.   The skirt is full length and has an elastic waist.  The elastic waist of the skirt can be rolled up to shorten the length if need be.
