My flatmate found out about the Rowany Festival, a Renaissance Faire not far from Sydney, with about four days notice for us to have costumes. This particular Faire requires you to wear “an attempt” at pre-17th century clothing, even if you are just visiting for the day. Coincidentally, I was already about 90% finished sewing this dress for something else so I decided to wear it to the Faire as well.
The dress was originally just going to be the purple part, but for the Faire I wanted to add those lovely draped sleeves as well. I didn’t have enough purple fabric left, but I found that lovely pink satin on sale so I decided the colour contrast was the way to go.
The pattern is McCall’s 6141 Renaissance costumes, and it is all satin I got on clearance. All the photos are by pambox, who also came along with us to check out the Faire.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
