Caitlin's Costume Closet
Generic pirate wench/Ren Faire
I made this outfit in the middle of making Arwen's chase dress. I'd splurged on a fabulous suede bodice (made by Austin Leather Works) at GenCon 2002, figuring I could make a chemise and skirt well enough on my own, and wear the whole outfit to King Richard's Faire. And that's exactly what I did-- I made the chemise and skirt according to the instructions at Dawn's Costume Guide and had no problems. I later pirate-ized the outfit for opening day of Pirates of the Caribbean, when my friends and I went in costume (arrrrrrr!), and then wore the pirate-wench version at Comic-Con and GenCon 2003, as well as King Richard's Faire later in the year.
