My 6 year old son wants to dress up when we go to the NY Renn Faire this year. I have never tried to make a costume before, but he says he doesn't want a "cheap" Halloween costume, he wants to be a real knight/prince (depends on the day).
After doing some research online on Elizabethan England I have pretty much figured out how to make him a costume that requires as little sewing as possible. The question is: would this be acceptable and somewhat historically accurate?
I figure I can just modify a cheap store bought white shirt to lace at the wrists, modify some pants to lace just below the knee, pair with white stockings and make a doublet (the hard part). Any input would be appreciated.
