      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.
