  Renaissance Costume 101. 

 I made every mistake imaginable on this costume, but it was fun.  The shift is raw silk with Tudor rose embroidery designs on the sleeves.  The skirt is of a very light linen/cotton/rayon woven stripe, chosen to be cool,since Shasta County is notoriously warm in the summer.  The green front panel is  linen/cotton blend with 11 repeats of the free Jacobean leaves design. That same design is centered on the corset front.  It is fairly obvious that the skirt needs a farthingale, but that will have to wait until the next fair.  I'm out of time and energy.
