Intro to Garb: Summary

 

Easy Things You Can Do To Look Good

1. Wear more than one layer. Having extra absorbent fabric, such as linen or cotton, next to your skin in the summer will keep you more comfortable. 

2. Use enough fabric. Skirts and tunics should have a fair amount of fullness at the hem; it makes it easier to move, and looks very nice. 

3. Enjoy yourself! Garb is festive clothing, we wear it when we are going to spend time with our friends, doing our hobbies and other re-creations. Changing into garb can change your outlook on the world.
