2008 Ren Dress

Ok so here is the Ren Dress I made for last years faire season. I wore it to, two different faires last year. This was also my first real sewing project. I have to say I am pretty happy with is and looking forward to making this years dress (which is going to be a recreation of queen elizabeth's red dress!). Anyway, here are some pictures . You can also see bigger more detailed pictures in my Ren dress album

The bodice and skirt are hand beaded at all the line intersections with three small pears. Needless to say, this took a WHILE. My mom and I spent 4 hours on just half the skirt.


I also made all the undergarments including:
Shift (slip)
Corset
Farthingale
Petticoat
Partlett

Accessories I made were:
Neck Ruff
Girdle (waist necklace for lack of better description)
Sleeves (Detailed with satin ribbon and more pearls!)
