This costume is one of three that I made for the renaissance faire band Sweet Amaryllis. The ladies in the band wanted coordinating costumes that reflected their own personal style. They chose the color scheme, and gave me an idea of the types of elements that they liked. This costume features a flowing striped jacquard underskirt with a scalloped linen overskirt. The bodice laces on the side front seams, and is made from the same striped jacquard as the underskirt. I cut the front and back sections of the bodice at an angle for visual interest. The body of the shirt is cotton broadcloth, and the sleeves are embroidered organza. The sleeves split up to the elbow for ease of movement. A glass pearl adorns the ends of the sleeves, and the bottom of each scallop on the overskirt.
