Here is my green dress. I dyed the fabric, muslin in an olive green but didn't leave it in long enough I guess. I do like the soft spring green color so no biggy. It's all one piece, the sleeves and under-skirt are sewn into the green. It zips up the back, not very medieval I know but hey if those girls could have used them they would have. Anyway the next one piece I'll leave out the zipper and make it more historically right.
This was taken in my back yard.
On a side note that's my late kitty Tigger.
This is at our wonderful Great Lakes Medieval Faire.
Here is one of my old stand bys for my faire. Pink skirt with white chemise and green bodice. All made by me. I tend to make the same patterns of this outfit in different colors.
I use muslin for my chemise, it gets very hot at the faire. Broadcloth for the skirt, and a quilting fabric for the bodice.
I have yet to reach out in the richer fabrics for my grab.
