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 client didn’t want a bodice or corset, because she felt that constrictive clothing would inhibit her playing. Therefore, I made her a feminine tabard over a linen underskirt. The tabard has decorative appliqués on the front and back made of the same embroidered organza as the short puffy sleeves. It laces up the sides. The shoulders and the bottom of the tabard are finished with glass pearls.
