    Give the seller credit, she lists as Theatrical two piece.... the original if there were one would be a different quality and far more parts! Labhaoise

        Sorry for the late response, but I noticed the items are made in Thailand.
        I've known a few people who have ordered similar items and have reported
        so-so quality for items made in China or Thailand.

        My own (perhaps slightly biased) suggestion would be to check some SCA
        dressmakers:
        -Barbs Garb
        -Briar Patch Garb
        -Neverland Designs
        -THLJudith (on e-bay)
