Hey... I decided I wanted to dress up with my friend when we went to the local Ren Fair.... Smiley

Here is my dress on the dressform and then on me... Smiley









there was no gap.... my dressform can't get my body shape.......

here is me in it


I'm in the middle... the purple/crimson dress...

here is the back when I was swordfighting my boyfriend Smiley



I had to alter the pattern which i think it was McCalls...

i didn't have enough of the fabric for the sleeves... so i did bell sleeves with the extra fabric left from the skirt... Smiley

Bugaboo1 helped me... Smiley
And.... I had to change the way i did the lace up back because i refused to put 20 eyelets on some fabric so i bought some eyelet tape.... it was a lifesaver... i did some shoddy sewing cuz i had to get it done quick and i left the skirt too long cuz i'm really short... haha...

Lemme know what you think,

What is the location of this Ren Fest? It looks a lot like my local one! Especially that wizard pole.
