This is a Project that I started months a go and almost finished but something came up and it got put into the project bin and I didn't pick it back up until today where I finally finished it and gave it to my husband. This is a super simple style that doesn't take any time at all to actually make and is a staple in any man's Renaissance Faire wardrobe.
 

You can't really see in this image but along the opening of of the shirt and the cuffs of the sleeves there is are leaf designs embroidered in black just to add a little more texture to the shirt without adding anything too flamboyant to the shirt.




And here is a picture of it all dressed up and ready to go to the faire!

It looks really nice, but won't black be a bit too warm for August?

Not for crazy Rusty. He is always wearing black shirts during the summer. :) Plus the fabric is a very light cotton so it will breath nicely. :)

If you would prefer one closer to this style I may be able to alter what I cut out for yours to fit this one. it takes a lot less fabric in the end.

That's good point about the black shirts plus the fact about the fabric being light.

Yeah, I do like that style. If you can alter mine go for it.

Cool cool, as soon as I get my iron back from my sister I can look into it...

So you take commissions right? If we lived closer and you could measure my daughter I'd have you make her dresses. This is amazing, it looks like something you'd buy in a store or from a magazine.

Awe! Thanks!

I've never made anything kid sized but I'm sure I could give it a go sometime. :) I have an idea for something simple like this that I think I could do.

It should be easy to wear for her and it would only have to be two peaces the under dress and the main top one.
