A day at the park always relaxes me. The trees, the sunshine, birds chirping, kids playing, and no one is rushing to be anywhere else. This in itself is a great reprieve from the hustle of daily living.
Just imagine how mesmerizing this time can be if you are surrounded by fair maidens, honorable knights, and even their majesties the King and Queen. You can actually witness the fairy tales unfold before you and be part of stories you can vow to be true.
I found a way to travel back through time to when fairy tales were lived, not just told and so can you. Google “œRenaissance faire” and you are sure to get accurate directions on how to get to one nearest you. As I spend a gorgeous day outdoors, I relive history while building lasting memories. All I needed was a costume and I found great company to build tales with soon as I walked through the park gates and in to the past.
Where did I find suitable attire? You can always rent, but I gave another personal touch to the fairy tale by making my own garb. After all, the best fitted costume is one made just for you. You too can certainly create your first outfit and now is a perfect time to get started on making these clothes.
My experience has shown that it is best to start by making heavier items because thicker linen fabric such as 4C22 is more forgiving to learn on while perfecting patterns and seams. This fabric doesn’t fray and holds stitches very well. You can be sure you will be comfortable in what you’ve made since 4C22 only becomes softer with use. And, this 100% linen has a home spun weave and texture that is a must to replicate pieces such as gambesons, waistcoats, breeches, petticoats, skirts, cloaks and have the items come out looking like historically accurate garb.
This week Fabrics-store.com has 10% off the heavy linen you need to successfully complete your outer garment. The fabric is 59″ wide and there are 27 Luxurious shades to choose from!
