Ren, not Stimpy, Faire

Weather permitting, my husband and I are going to the Renaissance Faire this weekend.  I want to ride the pony and climb up in the tree house.  What am I, 10?  Apparently so.  The clothes folks wear are so cool it's fun just to watch people parade around.   Lots of velvet and pearls and dress styles that are flattering for those of us who are not thin.  Although I imagine it would be more difficult riding a pony or climbing a treehouse garbed thus. Garb.  That's what you call ren faire clothes. If you are interested in creating your own beautiful dresses, vests, various forms of garb, the following books might be helpful. You can be ready for next year's festival!
