Many people think of the Volendam costume when they think of Holland. This is the costume which is replicated on all kinds of labels under 'Dutch Maid', with the peaked and winged cap. In fact, the costume is only worn in the one village and is not representative of the Netherlands as a whole.
There are three variants that are worn which is why you may see different images and they do not look the same. There is the everyday and young girl’s, the Sunday go to market and the special occasions costumes. The most often seen one is the last mentioned one and the costume that this pattern is based on.

To complete your outfit you can make a Edelkraal or Blood Coral necklace.
