Maid Marian

This is for the Maid Marian event going on at http://amandabethonline.blogspot.com/.

On October 3rd we had a Sherwood Forest Party,
and this is what I was wearing.

I made the dress and under skirt from the Butterick pattern 4827. I had been wanting to try the pattern for a while, and what a good excuse!I was very happy with how it turned out.

The dress laces up the back.Wayfarers Park was beatiful that day

Hepzibah- I love that park too. It worked great for the party and for pictures.

Nahla- Hope we helped.

SisterlyLove- Thank you! I had originally planned on a green dress with a brown underskirt, but couldn't find any fabrics I liked.

All- Thank you all for all the comments from people I don't know (and do know), and for following my blog!
