I've been slowly learning to sew for several years but only really got into historic costuming and cosplay over the past two years. This is my first attempt at a garment from the Italian Renaissance. This challenge is by far the most ambitious thing I've ever attempted and I am looking forward to learning a lot in the process.

My goal is to create an outfit from somewhere around 1490 - 1510 ish. The outfit will be: Layer 1: A camicia in a light-weight bleached cotton, Layer 2: Will be a side laced reversible gown in a dark blue and dark teal cotton sateen, Layer 3: Will be either an open fronted over dress or a mantle (this largely depends on time) Layer 4: For accessories I plan to make two necklaces, a pocket, and jeweled hair accessory.
