I -love- to attend Celtic Fairs and Renaissance Fairs, I have priced outfits several times and they are very expensive.  Yours is just fantastic and much prettier than what I have seen of late.  The detail and construction are outstanding, the sleeves fall beautifully...wow..great job.

That is absolutely stunning! I'd have never guessed that it was a bedsheet. Which is funny because I have a skirt somewhere that was made out of a shower curtain lol.

So very lovely! Looks expensive.

Yes, Caroline92f, garb can get really pricey.  Our renaissance faires are filled with "Playtrons" (garbed patrons) who dress to the nines and easily outdo the cast.  They can spend way into the thousands on there outfits.  Hundreds can be spent just on the underclothes.  Even hand-making these clothes can cost a small fortune in fabric.  I'm all for cutting expenses wherever possible.  Smiley

Though, using the bed sheet had the disadvantage of making my mom's underclothes very thick unlike light weight fabric like cotton gauze.  But, this outfit will be worn in the fall/winter, so she should be okay.

Thanks again, everyone, for taking time to comment.  I appreciate the support.  Please vote!

Looks great! I hope you're taking it to a Renaissance Fair to show it off! It looks better than a lot of the stuff they sell there!

That looks awesome!
I have made a Chemise out of a king size bed skirt. They come out looking so nice.

Yes, she's definitely going to be at faire in it!  She's going to wear this to Texas Renaissance Festival (TRF) near Houston.  We attend others in the Spring, as well.  I'm usually covered just about head to toe in pop tabs.  Smiley

I'd enjoy seeing pics of how yours came out.  I may be making my own set.  I need more tops and bloomers.  I could probably just use a queen or full set, though.  The skirt is what takes up all the fabric.
