anything is good enough to wear. My first costume SUCKED but I still had a blast! Thats the point, go have fun. Faires come around several times a year, theres always time to upgrade

That's such a pretty dress! You should wear it!

It is a very lovely dress!

I would suggest maybe adding a cloak to it, depending on how the weather is going to be, and wearing sandles or plain black NON-combat style boots--again, depending on when and where this faire is. (don't want to be running around with sandals in cold or rainy weather...and don't want to muck up nice boots).

Also, a simple flower wreath and/or ribbons worn with your hair down really adds a medieval/ renn flair and costs next to nothing.

Depending on how "put together" you want everything to look, also wear little jewelry, at least around the neck, unless it's something old or natural looking. A simple string of garnets (or crimson glass beads) or pearls would work well with that particular gown. =)

To add on to what everyone else has already said, if you're planning to be in character while at the faire you'll probably want to take on a middle class maiden persona. The dress you're wearing would not have been accessible by peasants XD
