My name is Tatiana Kaish. I am from Moscow, Russia, and I'm a professional tailor. However, I became interested in historical reconstruction relatively recently. This will be my third attempt at tailoring a dress in the style of the Italian Renaissance.
I plan to make a set of clothes from the 1530s inspired by "Portrait of Lady" by Peter de Kempeneer (previously aatributed to Girolamo da Carpi, see right).
The outfit will consist of:
Layer 1: Camicia, underskirt and partlet
Layer 2: Sottana with puffed sleeves
Layer 3: Cape or mantle for cold weather
Layer 4: Headdress, fan, leather gloves and shoes
