And the story...

I needed a costume for my fencing club's demonstrations. As I was a beginner and could not use a rapier yet, I thought it would be quite awkward to see a girl in a rich court dress fighting with a wooden stick. That's why I chose to make a villager costume first.
I used a Renaissance costume pattern to make this outfit. I made little mistakes, though... The top is too large, and the skirt is a bit too short: I needed to shorten it in order not to step on it while fencing, but I really think I made it too short. Anyway, the costume is comfortable to wear, and I used it on different occasions. =)
