great review and a charming project, good use for the prints you found and looks very authentic. I love the headdress too really tops the outfit!

Beautiful - just beautiful! I adore folk costume and embellishment and colors are just right.

I made versions of this for my DD about 10 years ago. FYI - the apron is called a sarafan, the dress is a rubakha, and the headdress is a kokoshnik, plural kokoshniki. If you look at my profile, you'll see I use a Russian maiden wearing a kokoshnik - I collect pictures of historic kokoshniki thinking someday I'll make an authentic replica. Excellent job on your model's costume!
