Exploring Sherwood...

At last... my medieval costume entry for Maid Marian's Wardrobe! The rain stopped for a few hours today, so out I went into the forest. Pictures or bust!

I made the cloak, but purchased the dress from an african booth at our state fair's international bazaar. :) The blouse is from Kohl's.












My lovely mother took the pictures for me (it's rather hard to take one's own picture), and then she returned my camera so I could take pictures of my sister, Hepzibah. <--- Check out her blog, too!

Miss Raquel- The pattern I used for this cloak was Simplicity 9887. I also have used Simplicity 5840.

Earwen- I found it at our State Fair, and when I saw it hanging up in a booth, I squealed so loud that everyone must have thought I was nuts.
