I had also brought food with me, and experimented with some medieval pies. One savory pie made with a hot water pastry and filled with a pork stew and one sweet pie with a traditional short pastry and a kind of saffron-custard filling.
By now I had upgraded my 1520's outfit since the last fair in Leksand, which is a reason why I haven't posted lately since I was quite busy the last week with fixing stuff.
The guards are simply tacked on, it looks nice but is really a quick fix. After this weekend I'm so inspired on working on a proper 1520's overgown, so this gown will go back to being an undergown and then the guards are not so important.
I think I might have found a calling in life as well, and that is to become a 16th century ninja.
Overall I love the 1520s look, and it's also really comfortable, so I'm hoping to have an even more complete 1520s wardrobe for next summer.
