Female vintage costume from Baranivka district, Zhytomyr region of Ukraine (north-western part of the country). The outfit consists of a long embroidered shirt, a wide and long woven skirt called “litnyk”, an apron, a narrow woven belt called “kraika”, a headdress (consists of a coif and two kerchiefs), and fake coral necklace.
The headdress is among the most interesting parts of the outfit. The coif underneath serves to hold the hair in place. And Ukrainian women traditionally wore long hair. Married females braided their hair and created kind of a crown around the head. The coif was worn over that crown of hair.
On top of the coif, this costume has an unusual kerchief. It is rectangular rather than square, and has patterned ends. When it is put on the head, the kerchief forms a dovetail shape.
The second kerchief often was a sign of wealth. It was tied under the chin. This particular one is made from silk and patterned – expensive kerchief.

Traditional attire of an older woman from Baranivka district, Zhytomyr region of Ukraine (north-western part of the country). The outfit consists of a long embroidered shirt, a skirt in dark colors called “litnyk”, an apron, a narrow woven belt called “kraika”, a richly embroidered bonnet called “ochipok”, and a headdress called “namitka”. No jewelry because old women seldom wore jewelry pieces.

The headset is the most interesting thing in this outfit. The bonnet is very beautiful and opulent. It serves to keep the hair hidden and out of the way. The piece called “namitka” is a long rectangular cloth with decorated edges (in this case, the pattern is woven into the fabric; it can also be embroidered). There are many various way of draping the namitka. In this costume, it is tied so that the pattern on the bonnet is visible.

Women’s traditional attire from Romny district, Sumy region of Ukraine (northeastern part of the country). It consists of a long embroidered shirt, a wrap-around skirt called “plakhta”, an apron called “zapaska”, a woven belt called “kraika”, a sleeveless jacket called “korsetka”, many rows of coral necklaces and a silver cross, and a headpiece that includes a bonnet and a kerchief.

The bonnet is called “horned ochipok” because it has a bulge at the front that symbolizes a horn. Such stylized horns are sometimes seen in vintage Ukrainian costumes (though, they’re rare) and they symbolize fertility.

Zapaska, Ukrainian folk apron, is usually hand-woven – the pattern is woven into the fabric. But this particular one is a modern reconstruction, and it is embroidered.

Traditional outfit of a matchmaker at weddings
This particular attire is from Ratniv district, Volyn’ region of Ukraine.
The clothing set consists of a shirt, a skirt, an apron, glass-beaded necklaces (such beads often were made from clear glass and silver-plated inside), and a fancy headdress (consists of a wooden headband – serves as a carcass; a long rectangular piece of cloth called “namitka”; a bright fabric band made from colorful ribbons sewn together and adorned with beads; and 2 bunches of rooster feathers – serve as a decoration).
All of these clothing pieces are embellished with applique, rather than embroidery or weaving. So, it is easier to make such a costume than a traditional Ukrainian embroidered outfit.
