It was Irish weekend at the MD Renaissance Festival. Hubby & I made new garb for this season.

My Garb
http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs693.snc4/63355_1554451856737_1098417791_1802952_5650632_n.jpg
I made everything, the Chemise, Bodice & both skirts. Hubby made my walking stick. The boots and ring belt were purchased.

The bodice is reversible with the plaid fabric on the other side. Worn with just the wine colored skirt, it doubles as a second costume. I'll take pics of the other side on my dress form, but was excited to post pics of what I had.

Hubby's Garb

I made the green shirt & black pants. The Gambison, boots & clay pipe were purchased.
We made the Bracers & Sachel bag were made from hubby's old motorcycle jacket and rabbit fur that he has had since he was a boy scout.

A reversible bodice is a great idea.
