I am incredibly excited to be participating in my first IRCC challenge! I became involved in the Society for Creative Anachronism four years ago and I’m known as Gianna Viviani from the Kingdom of Calontir. Three years ago I stumbled into Florentine clothing and haven’t looked back.

 

I’ve chosen to recreate the Isabella de’ Medici outfit from the painting attributed to Alessandro Allori. I’m drawn to the elegance of the black dress with the pinked white accents and the pearls. So many pearls!

My entries will consist of a camicia, ring partlet, sottana that will be finished so that it can be worn as a stand-alone sottana, an underskirt, and doublet gown. I will also make the girdle, necklaces, earrings, hairpiece, and other finishing touches.
