Why thank you! With the exception of a blackworked chemise I received as a gift, I make all my own garb. The spiffy part derives from my combined Bristol Ren Faire & SCA persona--she is a pretentious (as in she pushes the sumptuary laws) but very nice middle class Elizabethan widow.
Plus I'm a garb fiend. I thought more than once about joining the celtic living history guilde at Bristol (Thistlecroft, that is no longer around) because I love my irish heritage, can do a passable irish accent, love period crafts, and took irish step dancing lessons once upon a time, as well as irish gaelic, bagpipe & bodhran lessons at various points--but just couldn't do it because their clothes were so plain. LOL
