This is a huge thing, I plan at least 2 weeks prior to have everything done and ironed and put into packing.
This year we have a Rowenta Professional Steamer, so I can make sure all of our garb is wrinkle free. So for my Garb, Let me break it down:
Friday Evening Garb- Purple/Silver/Gold Venetian, I don't know if I will get the standing ruff done but if not that is okay I have girdle and fan and hat to complete.
Saturday Day Garb- Elizabethan Fitted Gown- Black Damask in Fleur de Lys gown and Lilac Damask Kirtle. Ruffs and French Hood to complete the whole look.
Saturday Evening Garb- Blue/Gold French Round Gown, with escoffion and Italian hat. Ruffs to complete the ensemble.
Sunday Morning Garb- Loose gown with coif.
However my things are mostly done, I have been working on them for the past months.
Friday Night Garb- Florentine 1545, Eleanor of Toledo, a Lady of taste and fashion!

I have been working on several outfits for the Hubs so he can look spiffy as well, but I have one that I hope is over the top!
He has nothing, because he keeps losing weight (Creep, I know right?)
