@Ani, Eugh, that's so expensive! When I put together my armor for reenactment, I got an entire hide for about 175$ but I used most (aka all) of it on the armor itself. Hm...I wonder if I can convince my brother to let me make a quiver out of his spare leather.
Also, in my experience, dying linen gets tricky because sometimes the fabric doesn't all take the same coloration.
So making the Epilogue dress in the Parks colors? Because I think that would be just fine (I think I've seen one or two people do that).
@psychoaccess, I've also heard that McCall’s M4490 would be a good starting point for this dress.
