Last spring, I made my first Ukrainian dress in honor of my babcha (grandmother). Unfortunately she passed away before she got to see me in the dress.
Two of my aunts devoted the last 7 years of their life to taking care of my babcha and sick uncle.
This dark grey version of the dress was made for one of the aunts for all the work she did for my babcha.
You can read more about the dress and how significant handmade clothing is to passing down traditions on my blog here: http://bit.ly/1bVoVdK
