This is a continuation of my last article, examining the embroidery of women's sorochky in Luhansk more closely.
This is another shirt completely worked in white on white with cutwork. The designs on this one rely more on counted satin stitch, with the cutwork forming small crosses at the intersections of the design. The shoulder embroidery forms a dense net with large stars, while the sleeve embroidery forms elongated rhombic shapes, multiple trees of life forming a network. The cuff embroidery is difficult to see, but is also based on rhombs.
This shirt is executed in red and black cross stitch. The shoulder has a rather modest rose pattern, while a large baroque floral scroll runs down the center of the sleeves. The cuff has a small band of embroidery as well.
