Bristol Renaissance Faire!
Last weekend I took a trip to the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Kenosha, WI. It was a painfully hot day, so I wore my bodice with no corset underneath. I cheated a little with a modern stretchy cami under my smock, but even without that it was very supportive. I think the softer silhouette was really pretty and looked rather Italian.
I'm wearing the bodice of the Darnely Gown and the petticoat I made for the new Venetian outfit. I made up the matching sleeves the day before. I was overheated a lot of the day, but I think this Elizabethan mix-and-match held up very well.
