My name is Josie Welch and I am from Christchurch, New Zealand. I have been in involved in the Society for Creative Anachronism (Barony of Southron Gaard, Lochac) since 2002 where I am known as Signora Onorata Elisabetta Foscari. I have been making Italian clothing for nearly all that time but wanted to make my outfits more authentic after falling in love with the dresses in Bronzino's portraits. Some of the outfits I have made since then can be seen here.
For this challenge I want to make the dress of the Duchess of Urbino, Eleanora Gonzaga, painted by Titian.
I will be making a camicia and drawers, a petticoat, a under dress and overdress. My accessories will be a partlet, zibellino, balzo and girdle.
