ukrainian blouse

Yet another project...

After making the romanian blouse I had promised myself NO MORE PEASANT BLOUSES!!! unfortunately their supreme and ultimate beauty is worth the hours, days, months of work put into them. And so a new journey began way before my visit to the ukrainian festival which only further encouraged me to make a vyshyvanka. I had originally planned on buying one at that festival but they were really expensive and not always such great quality. Contrarily to the romanian blouse I had made, I decided to cross-stitch the vyshyvanka since I’m using coarser linen and I also have a lot more time for this project because I will keep the blouse at the end.
