I have been a member of the SCA for about 15 years. I have extensive sewing experience, and recently decided to concentrate on late period garb. I have been mostly concentrating on working class British garb, but decided I wanted to try an Italian costume. My inspiration is a painting by Girolamo Forni (1582) entitled Portrait of a Lady. The painting:
Layers: A white sottana with sleeves; a pinkish veste; a camicia.
Accessories: A fan; a hairnet.
