My version was super easy to make...it only took a couple of days from beginning to end.
Patterns: The top didn't require a pattern...it's just a basic peasant-style blouse with a gathered neckline and gathering at the wrists. I cannot find the pattern for the pants, but I remember they were ver basic as well--pajama-style pants with an elastic waist, which I altered only by adding elastic at the ankles. The belt was a strip of maroon velvet (the most expensive part of the whole costume, believe it or not!). I sewed hooks and eyes in the back for a nice clean closure.
Fabrics: For the blouse, I used a lightweight off-white linen. Red peachskin satin was used for the pants, and, of course, the really nice maroon velvet for the belt. It looks like her belt has a print burned into it.
Extras: A very nice replica of her blouse does exist out there somewhere, but it is pricey. Since my budget was small, I opted for trim and machine stitching. I found the trim at Joannes, and dyed it with RIT in Scarlet. I used machine stitching at the neckline and on the sleeves (my favorite part). I also found some small red tassels, which I added to the sleeves.
Shoes: I found some red espadrilles at Wal Mart for $6 on sale! They are not entirely screen accurate, but since the blouse isn't either, I didn't stress it.
