I have been part of the SCA since I was small. I normally wear Elizabethan as I love wearing a farthingale. I have just recently started making my own outfits, I have never made an Italian Renaissance costume, but I am not a novice when it comes to sewing.
The outfit I'm intending to make will be inspired by the portrait of Saint Justina of Padua (right, top) by Bartolomeo Montagna painted 1490. Layer 1: camicia and bloomers. Layer 2: sleeveless petticoat. Layer 3: over dress. Layer 4: accessories. I will be making an alms purse, a set of jewelry, a fan, and a trinzale & coazzone but not the one in the 1st picture I will be doing the one pictured in La Bella Donna by Ambrogio de Predis 1493 (right, bottom).
