Here's a picture of some Moravian costumes -- these are quite similar to
the ones my parents own (they were in a Czech singing group). The only
dots I've seen in Moravian costumes are ones that are part of a larger
embroidered image, such as a flower (Like a few flattened teardrop shapes
representing leaves with a dot on top representing the flower) or a
www.moravanka.cz also has photo album covers, but the detail of the
women's clothes is harder to discern.
