From Wikipedia: 

Vyshyvanka is used as a talisman to protect the person wearing it and to tell a story.[18] A geometric pattern woven in the past by adding red or black threads into the light thread was later imitated by embroidery, and believed to have the power to protect a person from all harm.[11]: 278  There is a saying in Ukrainian "Народився у вишиванці" which is translated as somebody was born wearing vyshyvanka. It is used to emphasize someone's luck and ability to survive in any situation.

The only thing that we can add if that this dress is made from a lovely soft and cool linen.  It laces at neckline and has elasticized cuffs. It is unlined and absolutely a treasure. In excellent condition for its age - some scattered spots from age. We should all look so good.
