Artist's description:

The Ukrainian female costume for holidays differed from the one for everyday by the quality of cloth, variety of colors and ornaments. For holidays girls wore wreathes on their heads and necklaces as much as possible.

The basic element of Ukrainian female costume is women embroidered shirt, which was a little bit longer than male one and consisted of two parts. The lower part was made of denser and thicker tissue. The seamless skirt or apron was worn above the shirt. The seamless skirt was a part of tissue up to 4m in length, which was made with painted wool.

It was cut into 3 pieces and then two of them were sewn up to the third one in such a way that the middle of the lower part had to be situated opposite the cut of side parts. The seamless skirt was wind around the waist and tied with a belt on the top. The embroidery on that skirt was discreet and unpretentious. The apron was worn behind the skirt. It looked like today’s kitchen apron.
