fencing garb for women...
- I agree that fencing in ankle length is really not bad at all. It's
long enough to cover you and shouldn't get under your feet. As to what
to wear underneath I tend to wear either knee length pants,if it's
cold,or just normal underwear. The reasoning for this is that one of
the layers I wear is a long(midthigh)linen shirt and boots that reach
above my knees be several inches so there isn't much that's not covered
by at least one layer. I really recommned the tall boots,by the
way.They're way later period but they are great protection and you can
wear them under a skirt or with pants. Also the ones I got were only 45
dollars for ful length leather ones. They're also terrific for wars
where it's dirty or colder events. A layer of leather is a great
insulator. The skirt pattern I used is reminiscent of a riding
skirt,with four gores/sections which allow a fitted waist to go
smoothly under you doublet and still have fullness at the hem for swish.
Hope this helps.
