OK guys, I’m sort of a dork. I realize and embrace this fact, and in the interest of caring less about what people think of me and more about doing things that make me happy, I am making myself a cloak to wear to this year’s Ren Fair. Which starts in a couple of weeks.
I just found a pattern online and downloaded it. Next, I need to acquire seven yards of fabric to make this. JoAnn’s has a 50% off fabric coupon which I will be using, unless I find one that is on sale and cheaper without the coupon. I’m wanting to do a very light-weight fabric…probably a cotton or linen. It’s going to be white. I am already excited.
The reason I want to dress up for this at all is because the last time I went, I wore regular clothes and was SO jealous of all the people in their beautiful costumes. So THIS time, I’m not going to feel left out.
Here’s a drawing of the cloak ——
So just imagine this in white, with a white cotton dress underneath. I’ve wanted to wear my brown cloak to the Ren Fair before, but it’s too heavy since the fair is always in May. I figure a nice light white one will actually help though – with keeping my skin from being sunburned, and reflecting the sun (etc etc).
OK, will stop going on about this now. Will also post updates……. 😀
