Hi, My name is Rhonda Wright and I am from Colorado, USA. I am familiar with sewing as I have made clothes for my grandchildren but, am a novice to the Renaissance period of clothing. I have always enjoyed sewing and currently I do some alterations for friends and family.
I want to construct a child's period costume for my 13 year old granddaughter for nobility. I have a slight handicap with mobility issues so fitting for myself is a challenge. The dress that I want to construct is an early 1500s Italian style. It will consist of a camicia and drawers, an under dress and a gown. I also want to make a necklace, pocket and partlet.
I have purchased a fine white linen for the camicia and drawers. I have also purchased a beautiful green silk damask for the under dress and am looking for a green cotton velvet for the gown.
