    Post Pennsic, and a new old dress

    Pennsic XLI (41) is come and gone, and that's about all there is to say. My head wasn't really in it this year - I had a hard time settling into camp life, cancelled one of my classes due to tummy problems, and wasn't terribly motivated to do much except my stints as Shop Girl and Stunt Head Model. 

    Here's a new old dress for your perusal. I actually built this dress last year for the series of classes I taught at Pennsic XL (40). The gown is a 100% linen in teal blue that I bought at Pennsic XXXIX (39) and stashed away. It is cut as a standard Gothic Fitted Dress through the torso, lined in pink linen, and attached at the waist to a trapezoidal panel skirt. If I recall correctly, the skirt is 9 panels with a total of 4 yards in it. 

    I'm wearing it here with a linen camisa and gorguera (parlet), although by this point in the day the gorguera has made a determined effort to escape below the neckline. The necklace is actually my Pennsic medallion restrung on a silk ribbon, with my instructor token attached. I have on a tranzado with no cofia; you can't see it in this photo, unfortunately. The round thing at the right edge of the neckline is my new Pearl brooch from White Swan Illuminations. I'm wearing red shoes and linen hosen, and had just fallen off my new chopines about an hour before, so I am not wearing those in this photo.
