Renaissance Faires 2009-2012

Every year we attend at least one Renaissance festival.  It started when my husband took me to one that he and his friends had attended before.  The first year I bought an outfit.  That faire closed but a few years later a friend of mine was interested in going to one so we searched around and found a handful within a 2 hour drive.  I had one nice outfit but I wanted to make my began the sewing adventures!!!!

We decided to make our own outfits to wear.  Hubby's was simple as it was a jerkin that his mom helped me make along with a shirt, pants, boot and belt that we bought. For my daughter I drafted a pattern from her own clothes and made her a open front kirtle (not that I knew what it was called at that time!)  For myself I made a "vest bodice" and a quick skirt to wear on top of a beautiful chemise that I already owned.

Here are posts about some of the sewing I did in the past:
(I will be updating soon about this years outfit soon!)

I have made a few other outfits over these few years.  Some I have loved and other... not so much!
