Brown Velvet Upper-Middle Class

This past weekend my sister came up to visit and agreed to change clothes about a billion times so that I could photograph some of the projects that have been finished forever but somehow have never made it into pictures. 

This gown is my go-to ren faire outfit.  It's loose, comfortable, and doesn't require boning or elaborate hairdos that require 6 am wakeups. 

The gown was made using the Tudor Tailor patterns and is a loose overgown, worn over a blouse and a wool underskirt.  The gown itself is brown velvet and trimmed in gold braid.  It closes with hook and eyes at the bodice which are then covered with gold satin ribbon ties.  The gown bodice is lined in linen.
