This upper middle class doublet and skirt were made to wear to the local Ren Faires. This outfit has been through several incarnations (and wearers!), which I think really helps it look like clothes, rather than a costume. It's not an "ensemble" that has to go together, just a collection of pieces that have been mixed and matched.
The doublet was made out of some brocade I had lying around. It's lined with linen and buttons up the front. My skirt is made out of red wool. Karen's skirt was made out of some velvet that I had in the stash. Unfortunately, I think it's upholstery velvet, so the skirt is very heavy and really only good for fall faires.
