like a chemise. It was for summer and hot weather,
like much of the garb worn by Meridian ladies. I'm
going to be making some other garb after we do our
event and I have the time. I've never made a panova. I
can't quite figure out how to make one, but I'd like
to. I'd also like to have at least one Viking outfit.
BTW is yellow period? I have some yellow fabric. I'm
trying to figure out if there's anything I can do with

About the length of rubakhas.
Once I got the book by Russian Folk Art Museum on embroidery, I came across the
fact that those (censored) scientists preserved only those parts of the shirts
that bore embroidery. Once the catalogue photo shows a detail of a shoulder
piece, cut out with a poair of scissors, as the image lets see. Same damn stuff
with some rubakhas, that are shown cut about/a little above waist. That may be
the reason, I'm 75% sure.
Though some folk costume scholars refer to the Scandinavian two-piece
"sarafan", sarafan is usually referred to 14 century, and to northern half of
European Russia mostly (Ukraine & Southern Russia wore shirt & skirt
(Plakhta)). BTW, "traditional sarafan" really looks more like the corresponding
Korean dress, than the, say, Norman one.
