Ukrainians and Russians have always been enthusiastic consumers of folk crafts, often wearing white linen shirts embroidered in red and black by villagers. These popular shirts, worn by peasants and nobility alike, reflect a merging of European and Central Asian textile traditions, creating a unique folk art.
We offer three shirts typical of the late 19th century, which are preserved and worn on festive occasions today. All three are narrower than many ethnic styles; each has a high snug collar, a lined shoulder area, and narrow side panels.
In our simplest version, View A - a typical straight-sleeved Ukrainian shirt - the center front opening has facings turned to the outside and closes with hooks and eyes. Instructions for traditional twisted thread ties are also given.
View B, from North-Central Ukraine, features an overlap side closing. The sleeves are gathered into narrow cuffs; cuffs and collar may be fastened with hooks and eyes or traditional button-and-loop closures.
The off-center side placket in View C is a Russian feature. Its folded construction conceals a buttoned closing. The sleeves are identical to View A.
In all three views, the collar, sleeve hems or cuffs, and front opening may be left untrimmed, finished with braid, or embroidered. Authentic embroidery designs are given for each view.
