A Merry Maiden

angren4I promised before that I would post again with some of the costumes I created for this year’s Renaissance Festival. At long last here is one maiden wearing the fine garments I was able to make for her!

The full length skirt for this ensemble was made from a brightly colored woven cotton fabric that’s comfortable and cool. It has a gathered elasticized waistband.

Her chemise is made from white cotton muslin. It’s a short chemise, coming just past the waist, with three quarter sleeves and a gathered neckline. The shorter lengths are ideal in the blazing Florida heat.

The crowning jewel of the costume is the gorgeous Victorian style overbust corset. Made from soft crushed velvet over a sturdier support fabrics, her corset is both beautiful and durable. Inside, the corset is reinforced with 20 pieces of thick steel boning for a supportive fit and beautiful shaping! The back is studded with closely spaced steel grommets to allow tight lacing and a snug fit.
