For who enjoy attending the Renaissance Festival, and maybe want to start looking at costumes, or new ones, I have a nice list of shops that I have either purchased from or simply adore their work.
Over the years I have slowly compiled a
ridiculous list of resources, links, images, patterns, costume stores etc.
First up, Research. The Renaissance was a cultural movement of perspective art and reformation of education that spanned the 14th to the 17th century, which started in Italy and quickly progressed through the rest of Europe. Here are a few links for research I have found.
Below are a few stores, with appx. price ranges and samples of dresses from their stores.
Renaissance Dress "Starter Packs" - $100-$250
Your Dress Maker - $80 and up
