My name is Dianne Stucki, and I live in South Lyon, Michigan. I am not exactly a novice to Italian Renaissance costuming, but neither am I an expert.
My usual focus is 16th century English. My persona is at the bottom rung of the merchant class where my clothes are mostly quite plain and serviceable, but with a few slightly more expensive touches here and there, such as drawn threadwork on the apron and a scrap of beautiful fabric for a socaccia. In modern life, I am a stay at home mom with three kids still at home, along with two dogs and a parrot.
My ensemble will consist of the following items: camicia, drawers, underskirt, wool gown with tie-on sleeves, apron, pocket.
I will be taking my inspiration from Campi's portrayals of working class women.
