      Layers are your friend -

      Start with a linen Chemise, or 5. You won't regret it, trust me.
      Linen or silk Kirtle next
      Linen or silk Cotehardie (or brocade even)

      If you make a hood to keep the back of her neck covered, she will be warmer.
      Don't forget her legs: Stockings or some kind of hose.

      On the cost of fabric:
      Linen - www.fabric-store.com $5-7/ yd
      Silk - www.silkconnection.com - spun silk taffeta $6/yd (good for top
      layer), silk broadcloth $8/yd. Both in white but dyes like a dream.

      Good luck!
