this is roughly how I did it for a family of 4. there is a lot to make, and you either pace yourself or have a mad rush at the end. I don’t have the time in my life to do mad rushes as have a significantly demanding job, and then 2 children 2 play with, take places and in the spare spaces a husband! so pacing was the only option. [and i have to say that although we usually do a lot of growing-our-own, I just didn't have time to do that and sew]
The early months were more relaxed, but by the time we hit March I was sewing every single day to achieve this, several hours.
the amount of linen/wool is obviously an estimate, as depends on size/build and cut of clothing. I had more than this, so had 2 coifs each and some spare, so have tried to guess how little i could have got away with. I did cut carefully though. If linen is approx £7/m and wool approx £12/m this would come out as £98 pp linen and £84 pp wool. looking out for bargains will shave some off this – we used old blankets for jackets which definitely helped.
You have kit to buy on top – shoes [approx 50] belt  knife bowl and spoon  basket  mug  straw hat  and then anything needed for station – axes for woodsmen, cooks knives etc etc. ie approx £300pp.
Re-enacting is not cheap! look out for second hand shoes and jackets and people selling their wool stashes…
