The Bard's English

A guidebook for those who would learn the language as it was spoken between 1500 and 1650; the time of Queen Elizabeth and Shakespeare, and is the time frame for most Renaissance Faires.

"I wish I had started with the Margo Anderson patterns instead of the big three commercial patterns. I had been sewing for years when I got them ... the methods & instructions & suggestions for trim are worth the price alone without the patterns. I learned a great deal from them & found it well worth the price."
 - Sharon

"Just a little side note about Margo's patterns. It is not just "a pattern." It entails EVERYTHING from the chemise, farthingale, bum roll, to the outer garments in multiple sizes and multiple countries. She includes all of the accessories like hats, purses, etc. What you get in Margo's patterns would cost you at least twice as much if you could find the patterns with someone else. AND -- on top of everything else -- they are historically correct with great instructions that are easy to follow!! NO -- I do not get any kind of commission or money for promoting Margo's patterns but -- I did buy her patterns and have been using them for my Elizabethans and I am EXTREMELY happy with them!! ... I do not believe you will be disappointed."
