I have this lovely green dress I picked up at a garage sale. The
woman selling it was a part of the SCA (or at least used to be), and I
beleive also ren fairs. My problem is I can not place the dress.
It's highly possible I'm just not aware of it, since, being new, there
is much I don't know about period clothing. It's green, with trim
running down the bodice, and looks vaguely Tudor to me. In my folder
in the Photos section I've included pictures of the dress and its
coat. The first two are without
any tucks, but the third picture is pulled tighter across the front.
The dress is too big for me, so I pull it tighter and create a
slightly different angle to the trim on the bodice. Not sure how
period the angle is, but I though it looked good. The fourth picture
is of the over-coat. If anyone can help my identify this dress, or at
least tell me if it's period enough to wear to an event without being
embarassed, I would greatly appriciate it.
