So my new quest is this: create and enter into the 2012 regional A&S Faire a complete outfit. (The judging criteria for this can be found here.) I've been giving this a bit of thought, and I think I've decided to do a complete outfit from Flanders circa 1430. Middle class, of course. I need to do much more research into many of these items, but here's a basic list of what I know at this point is involved:
- supportive dress
- hose & garters
I had originally thought that I wanted to do silk in either blue (A) or raisin (b), lined in white linen, with a gold fitted dress (C), but I didn't (and still don't) know if silk would be accurate. So I'm going to need to delve deeper into this concept and see what this outfit entails so I can get to work on it.
This means that I definitely need to clear my project pile pretty quickly to be able to complete all this stuff. Time to get the whip out again....
