My "Maid Marian" inspired dress!

Hi Everyone! So, the bell tolls, and Maid Marian's Dress is revealed. I'd like to tell you about my dress.I made it with a pattern, started cutting the pieces out, and realized the instructions were non-exsistant! Thats right, I did this ENTIRE dress without instructions! LOL! I'm  really blessed it came out this well! I used fabric thats been lying around the house being useless. I guess I'll start with the hood. I had no pattern for the hood so I took one of my hoodies and cut around the hood, stiched the fabric up and... voila'! I cut strips of fabric and warpped them around my arms (with moms help!  : )P   The belt is something I wear all the time with my "modern" clothes.  The dress pattern orginally didn't tell what to do with the skirt, so I slit the dress so the light colored skirt would show through. There is also a lovely train in back. After making this dress, and seeing how perfectly it fits me, I think I'm going to modernize it and make a summer dress from the pattern. I'll probably have to shorten the length (it took ten yards of fabric!) YIKES! That can get expensive! Luckily I had this fabric!
