I am excited to be joining the IRCC challenge again this year. I’ve been making historical costumes for five years. This will be my fifth Italian Renaissance project.

For this challenge I will be attempting to make the ensemble from Portrait of a Lady by a follower of Bronzino, ca. 1575-85.



Over the last few months I have had success with digitizing period laces and stitching them out with my embroidery machine. I will be experimenting with using the same process to make trim, the partlet, and metallic lace on the veil.

My 10 items will be:

  1. Camicia
  2. Underskirt
  3. Sottana
  4. Giubbone
  5. Veste
  6. Partlet
  7. Necklace
  8. Drawers
  9. Veil
  10. Stockings
