Ready For Adventure...
I loved Maid Marian's wardrobe because it was so practical, pretty and feminine. My outfit was not inspired by any particular one of hers but more the idea of her being a lovely young woman, but always ready to do what was necessary, whether it was fighting for her life or escaping to the forest. This ended up a little shorter than I had originally intended, but I found that it made it easier to take hikes and swordfight in.
For this dress I used Simplicity 9891, though raised the neckline a bit and made up the sleeves, as the ones from the pattern were not the most practical.
The cape is one I got at Herbergers last spring, leather gloves were a gift a couple years ago and the dagger my grandparents gave me.
My only disappointment is that I can't wear stuff like this more often!
