I am attending a Medieval wedding this Halloween and I am currently up-cycling my dress.
I have taken an old dress and I am making it new again.

I need some advice on the bodice... I dont like the dress's current one so I want to replace it... but with what?
What pattern?
What type of fabric?
What color?

your costume is constructed like the picture to the far right...the front vent is set in the skirt...the other dresses are meant to be a open over dress with sleeves over a chemise that laces up. that would be the period construction. if you want to gig up yours, replace that front panel with a contrasting color and find some braids that you can trim you bodice with and do the upper arm bands with......you could also use a tasseled braid, go to a upholstery fabric store and look at their gimps and braids.....sooo much you can do here, ren period or ren fair costumes are just awesome....its about your layers. good luck post pics!!
