So, it seems I'm moving more into costumes and clothing making, which is fine with me. Other than I don't have time to paint. XD This dress took me all day long.
I got up EARLY in the morning and didn't finish until after midnight that night. Really, it's 2 dresses. You just can't see both of them. I'm really proud of how it turned out.

This was made for Tourney of Foxes '09. Great time.

Beautiful. I love the medieval styles. Nice choice of fabric and coulour. Is it very long. Im intriged how they wore them those days completely draping and dragging in the dirt. How do you think they managed? Is it hard to walk in ?

Thank you very much! I'm glad you like it. This one is my personal favorite.

It's not really hard to walk in as long as I don't try going up a large number of stairs. Then, as long as you hold the skirts up, it's not too bad.

As to the dirt... I'm not too up to speed on what they would have done this early of period, but, I know sometimes they would use a 'guard' at the hem of the dress. basically, a band of a cheaper, tough fabric that covered the bottom 6 inches on the inside of the skirts, and just a little bit on the outside.

Later, they had shoes made that were more or less big wooden blocks they slipped their normal shoes into that were tall enough they kept the skirts above the ground.

Though women didn't spend too much time out walking, anyway.

I saw the pants. You did a great job. Pants have always been very difficult for me.

Width I think is a matter of personal preference. It's hard to tell whether or not they're too long. As long as they aren't so long that walking in them will damage them, then they ought to be just fine.

True. They do tend to drag and slop around abit but being heavy denim they hold up ok. Thanx for your feedback.
