Finished and worn at the SCA West Kingdom A&S event. Was originally going to wear it with a white shirt, but that looked to stark. So I rooted around in my closet and found a black gothy peasant dress in cotton gauze with full sleeves. It worked visually, if not accurately. Must make a coordinating shirt at some point.
I planned to wear it with a black ruff, but the day was far too hot. I did wear it with a white linen, wired-front coif which I entirely hand-sewed two nights before the event. Not sure what got into me ‘cept I wanted another item of headgear.
While the whole outfit was rather sack-like and bordered on butter-churny, it was exceedingly comfortable (despite the 90-degree heat). And it *was* rather elegant and refined, so I could easily fall into my goodly housewyfe for a country manor persona. Quite suitable!
I’ve since worn this outfit at many SCA events, both as-is and with other accessories. It’s proving to be a workhorse of my camp wardrobe. Very useful, comfortable, and attractive. I can throw it on in the morning over my nightclothes & wear it around camp, or I can dress it up with ruffs & jewelry for a day-long event. Everyone needs one of these!
