Description
While court garb looks great, it isn't always practical for our activities in the SCA. Working women in period wore clothing that allowed them to lift heavy things, work in kitchens and chase small children - all things we do as well! In this class, we'll discuss methods of fitting and constructing undergarments, gowns and accessories, plus appropriate fabrics and embellishments.
