A lot of us do Russian, I do 16th c. Russian, but the
gist of what most of us think is that sarafans were
not worn in 14-15th century, we are still divided as
to whether they are period for 16th early 17th
We don't have an extant sarafan for that time period,
only later, however some books have drawings of them,
however the period sources don't actually name them by
name, etc. etc. etc.
You would wear your hair in braids, two or more, a
small kokoshnik on your head, or nothing, you got
veiled and capped when you got married.
I think there is a couple of Russians in the SF area,
I am sure they will respond to your message.
