While I love this dress and have gotten use out of it for the past 10 years (yes, I am a renaissance faire nerd and proud of it!) I can't help but dream of a more elaborate new costume. I found this pattern at Simplicity and am trying to convice my aunt to help me with it. It calls for more than 6 yards of home decor weight fabric (which means $$). I don't think its a project I will be starting soon but I can always dream can't I?
Here are some more pictures from the faire.
Ladies in Waiting, these are the type costumes I would love.
Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth I.
A beautifully dressed Lady I stopped in the street. Another example of a dress I would love to have and wear to the faire one day.
