TWO FOLK GARMENTS, RUSSIA, I pinned these in the diy patterns to show what the patterns previous to these can look like.

Russian Sarafan - It is a pinafore-like dress that hangs from under the arms down to the ankles. It used to be worn by women in Russia. It might have been derived from the panjova, another Russian garment.
