My Ukrainian heritage is visible in many of my projects, but this is the first time I’ve attempted a more authentic piece.
This linen peasant blouse is reminiscent of a blouse my babcha embroidered before she immigrated to the United States.
My mother started the embroidery this spring and I finished sewing it just in time to enter it into a contest!
The blouse is 100% thick ivory linen. (I love this linen! It’s the same linen I used for my Easter 2015 maxi skirt.)
My mom used Charles Craft Waste Canvas for the embroidery. She used 1o count for the cuffs and 14 count for the rest of the shirt’s embroidery.
Next Ukrainian project……MY LINEN DRESS!!!
Thank you Tess for the beautiful photos!
