Archer Dress-Complete for now by FenigDurak Archer Dress-Complete for now by FenigDurak
I put a rush on this costume to get it complete in time for the last weekend of Ren Fest. I left off a few things (like leather work and the additional brooches) in leiu of time. It's a little dirty, but no worse for the wear. Design sketch found here.

Gauze, and silk, and two unknowns (the underskirt and sleeve). I'm not ridiculously thrilled with the pattern I drafted, but I had bought the last 5 yards of silk noil for the overdress and had to make due. It's very comfortable to wear, and the drawers made visits to the privy easy. ;)

I can't think of much else at the moment. I may edit later.

That's beautiful! Very simple, with the elegent sleeve.... well actually both sleeves are elegant. ^_^ But the pretty brocade one is just so... pretty! Very sweet and simple, a casual "ooh, I'm just from the little village over the way, but I've kept quite clean and pretty and I'm fair enough with a bow". :D I love this dress the more that I look at it. It hangs so nicely, too. Well on the manequin anyway, I can hardly even think what that'd look like on a living, breathing human being.

... unless you're an elf? :)

-=attempts to look at one's ears sans mirror=- Uhm...not that I know of. -=smirk=- But then, I have a lot of hair that covers these things.

I'll see about getting a picture in the whole thing.
