I am heading off to the first weekend of rehearsals for the New York Renaissance Faire! Huzzah! I am very excited for the rehearsal process, last year I started part-way through the season and missed it.
Readers, this is where I need your help. This year I am portraying the Queen’s Mistress of the Robes (which is going to be so, so fun). In order to create her unique voice, I am collecting up as many fashion, sewing, and textile-related idioms as I can think of. There are so many that we use in everyday speech (straight-laced, tight-knit, bursting at the seams, and infinitely more) that I cannot possibly think of them all myself.
So, readers, please comment with any fashion, sewing, or textile-related idioms you’d like to share! I would love to hear from you!
