My family is going to a renaissance faire this summer and I decided that this time we should all go in costume (rather than just me like last time, hehe). When I set out to make my mom a costume she was a bit apprehensive as she thought a peasant blouse would just make her look frumpy and shapeless.
She was actually quite pleasantly surprised with how it turned out and is quite pleased to wear it to the faire! Yay! My dad has been having a ball joking about her being his wench now.
Bigger picture here:
Made out of broadcloth
Pattern drafted from a similar item that I have. Lacing added to the back also.
Fully reversible - one side is made out of an old pair of brown velvet pants, the other from a quilting print fabric.
