I have made theatrical costumes for twenty years as well as various outfits for Renaissance fairs in the USA. This is my first Italian Renaissance ensemble, which makes me a novice and first time participant in this challenge. My four year old daughter loves to dress up and encourages me to make things and wants to help, although my sewing time is often interrupted for snacks and play time. I live in Hawaii.
I will be making a simple camicia and partlet with purchased lace. I will make a sottana and overdress with split skirt. My goal is 1570's Florence.
