      Does anybody have a pattern or instructions for making a povoinik (the little
      tight-fitting cap described on Sofya la Rus'
      website?(http://www.strangelove.net/~kieser/Russia/KWChead.html) I've never
      seen one up close, and I can't quite make out how it's done from the pictures
      on the site.

      Thanks!

      ... In it s most basic form, the povoinik is a circle (or oval, I suppose) with a simple band around the edge to fasten it to the head. See

        In it's most basic form, the povoinik is a circle (or oval, I suppose)
        with a simple band around the edge to fasten it to the head. See
        http://www.strangelove.net/~kieser/Russia/Garb/panova.gif for an example.
        This pattern should resemble the form of the volosnik (netted "povoinik")
        I show on my headdress page.

        Another pattern I've seen (courtesy of Seraphima Yaroslavna's garb class)
        is a circle edged by a band to go around the top of the head, and a
        half-circle attached in back to cover the lower back of the head with
        strings around the edge to gather it around the hair. See
        http://www.strangelove.net/~kieser/Russia/Garb/navershnik.gif. This
        pattern is closest to the illustrations you see on my Headdress page, if
        you ignore the extra forehead and nape decorations.

        Here's a quick sketch I made of what the two patterns would look like from
        the side:

        I hope this helps.

          Hi there,
          Does anybody have schemes for sewing a Russian summer costume for 14
          century re-enactment? I am looking for a court clothes that might have
          been used in Poland that time?

          Im also looking for adresses of Eastern armourers that
          specialise in 14 century and make realiable replicas of armour and arms.

          Thanks,

          Wojciech
