My mother, Antonina Trach gave me this shirt many years ago. An older lady friend of my mother’s gave it to her. She told my mother that it was worn by her mother. The shirt was not in the best shape when my mother got it. She and another friend of hers, Mrs. Kinasz from Grimsby, repaired it. This shirt is stunning. The embroidery is completely beaded in dark brown, green, red, orange, yellow and blue beads. All the seams are delicately stitched in tiny open-work embroidery that must have taken the person who embroidered this shirt many hours. This card is a very simple depiction of very fine embroidery.
