      Only at the top? Do you mean the top edge so that the drawstring can be
      placed through the hem or do you mean a place on the upper torso?
      --------------------------

      The panova is a sort of split skirt, not a dress. The only place the three
      panels are designed to touch each other is at the top where they're gathered
      onto the drawstring waist.

        Thank you! Although I should have known that from Mordak's packet (blushes
        furiously).

          Interesting contrast with the panova: the plakhta, or Ukranian "winged
          skirt", is two panels sewn together halfway, then folded over a
          drawstring. The petticoat (pidtychka) does not show in the back, only
          in the front, and the top layer of the plakhta splits open in the back
          as you wear it to show the under layer fabric. I made mine of a stiff
          heavy brocade which was blue with gold on the outside and gold with
          blue on the inside, which created a nice contrast. You wear the
          plakhta with a sorochka (blouse), korsetka (sort of a flared tunic)
          and a fartukh (apron). This was a common outfit for women in the
          Poltava region of Ukraine.
