Italian Ren. dress

Early Italian Renaissance dress (I'll add the link to the instructions when I can find it)

 

Dark green dress is made from light-weight wool twill, sleeves from cotton/polyester brocade lined with cotton broadcloth, and chemise is made from embroidered Indian cotton. There is supposed to be black velvet ribbon around the neckline, but I couldn't find any in time for this event.

Fortunately, I'm not well endowed enough to need a corset with this. The bodice is backed with heavy canvas interfacing, then lined with cotton twill. It laces up on both sides, towards the back.
