Mademoiselle in Ukraine



Summer holidays are over in Ukraine and today all students went back to school.
This is how girls attend lessons on the first day, but during the Soviet Union they used to dress like this every day. Isn't it lovely?

  1. You're kidding1!! Where did these uniforms originate? They look like a play upon the stereotyped "French Maid" costume.

  2. Omg I can't believe they wear this to school!
    It looks cute, but It must be hard having to wear such a strict uniform everyday!
    Amazing picture though!
