A sarafan (Russian: сарафа́н; IPA: [sərɐˈfan], from Persian sarāрā) is a long, trapezoidal traditional Russian jumper dress (pinafore) worn as Russian folk costume by women and girls.
Plain sarafans are still designed and worn today as a summer-time light dress.
The outer layer of a Matryoshka doll is traditionally depicted wearing a sarafan.
