Greetings and Thank you!
Yes, please share the web pages information. I've been looking at those
that were noted in this SIG and if you have others to share publically or
privately please send them to me. My wife, Elizabeth, and I have found
there is very little information about Russian clothing that includes (and
this is the key)- patterns. I'll take any historical costuming information
that pertains to Russia and the Ukraine but I am specifically after patterns
and there seems to be a severe lack of such.
I have an excellent book on Ukrainian clothing [thin hard cover called
Ukrainian Costumes] which I purchased in Edmonton Alberta (published in
Australia). We are using this book, along with period paintings/drawings,
etc., to guide us in the creation of some Russian/Ukrainian garb. I
attempted to locate the publisher - no luck. We just happen to be taking a
trip back to Canada to visit relatives so one of our specific buying
excursions will be the search for books at Ukrainian shops.
