      don't know why but this just reminded me that I saw a book on _Ukraine
      Embroidery_ that has a bunch of pictures of the more modern folk dress, I
      don't remember if it goes into how the folk dress developed or not but had
      some wonderful designs and in the last chapter or so it had instructions for
      making a shirt with embroidery. since it is spesicfally on the Ukraine
      embroidery it may be better than the general folk costumes books. Another
      book to maybe look for is called _Costumes of the East_ has a bit of text on
      the balkans, casasus and ukraines region, some line drawings and possibly
      some pictures.
