I will say this once, I will say this a hundred times, I will even preach
it, if you like...Wear what is comfortable to you.
You have made more of an effort with that outfit then those skinny little
things with their chain mail bikinis (I will reserve my thoughts on those
things for another moment when I am in a more charitable mood-if ever)
The "Irish" Dress is more Renn Faire then Period, true. But, it is still an
good attempt at pre-1600 garb, which is all the SCA has ever asked of its
Go, wear what you like, enjoy yourself, and get muddy.
Have fun for me, who will be stuck at home, working in a yard that is close
to being crispy without actually being on fire...
Is the whole world going to an event except me???<whine>

Subject: [SCA-Garb] salvaging the "irish" gown
Given that the so-called "irish" gown (fitted bodice, sleeveless, attached
skirt that is open in front to the waist) isn't period...what could be done
to salvage one and make it not-quite-so-wrong?
They're predicting rain this weekend, and I'm going to be waterbearer for
the equestrian events (horses, rain, mud...you get the picture), and I'd
rather wear something that I won't worry about getting wet or dirty, which
means my old garb that I made before I knew any better. Would attaching
sleeves work? Fitted, full, long, short?
If I can't make it right, I'll just wear it as it is and not worry about it,
but I'll make the effort if there's a change that will "fix" it.
