really start sewing or even have a real interest in it until after
boot camp (9 years ago), but when I did I fell into it headfirst.
My first love is and will always be Renaissance, but you can find
me conspiring over anything between 1400-1950. Even with 9 years
of experience, I usually take a long time to complete a
costume so I am a complete novice in Italian Renaissance
am going to attempt a dress inspired by two out of Vecellio's
Renaissance Costume Book (page
7, #16 and 18). I may have to do a bit more research but I believe
its a kirtle type under dress with a open gown over. If I have
time I want to add hanging sleeves, a veil, a partlet and jewlery.
I haven't decided if I am going to make a new
camicia or use a
chemise I already have and make a pair of drawers.
