I’m an extremely slow sempstress because I’m easily distracted. I’ve completed very few historical costuming ensembles, and no Italian Renaissance outfits, so I am a novice to Italian Renaissance costuming. I’m a cat mom and an inveterate dabbler. I used to run a small festival/con/fair business selling goods that were pretty yet inexpensive. I stopped doing that about five years ago.
My proposed outfit is based on Campi’s images of working women. My conceit is that my family is better off financially than initially apparent, so I’m able to have lovely things. My outfit will consist of:
1. Linen camicia
2. Roped underskirt (fabric TBD)
3. Wool dress with a set of sleeves
4. Accessories: a. Partlet with an attached ruff (linen). b. Pocket (saccoccia). c. Apron (linen). d. Hankie (linen)
