Russia 1840 (commoners) by Tadarida Russia 1840 (commoners) by Tadarida
Two peasant girls wearing sarafans and kokoshniks. Sarafan was a trapezoid dress worn with a blouse. It was a traditional dress, worn by peasant and middle-class women from 14th to 20th century (upper class stopped wearing it in 18th century, during Peter the Great's modernization). It was worn with a kokoshnik for fancier occasions and with a head scarf for everyday uses. 

Here's a variation of a kokoshnik worn during that time on court: tadarida.deviantart.com/art/Ru…
