I started sewing over twenty years ago and fell in love with historical costume along the way. I am an the author of tudorrevolution.blogspot.com, and a card carrying member of the Society for Creative Anachronism. My love affair with Italian renaissance clothing started when I met my Laurel six years ago.
I have been in love with this portrait at the San Diego Museum of art for years and plan to reproduce it as closely as I can. I will need a new camicia, partlet, sottana with sleeves, jewelry, and petticoat. Should I have time I also intend to make a parasol and new shoes.
