I actually didn’t remember which costume I made first – this medieval peasant outfit or my Strawberry Shortcake ensemble. I sewed both during high school (back when I had more time to do such things!). However, being that I’m wearing glasses in this picture it must have been when I was a sophomore. I, happily, got contacts my junior year.
I was excited to use grommets on the corset/vest, but they were such a pain! Luckily I now have several tools for inserting the obnoxious things. It’s a fun costume and I’ve worn it many times. I think my mom even borrowed it once. A peasant costume comes in handy!
