The dress of the woman on the left is what I am truly interested in. My research has been indicating the possibility of split front or open front dresses and I really like the dress this reenactor has done. I think it could be a predecessor to a "sarafan"
I do not know which grave find the dress of the left woman is based on. It might be Finno-Ugrian tribe or it might be a Slavic tribe. But I know that cowrie shells and metal plaques have been found in graves in northern Russia, so I wanted to add it. The re-enactor on the right wears Birka tablet-weaving decorating shawl and apron-dress. Wolin Slav and Viking festival in Poland
