I have had an Italian persona within the Society for Creative Anachronism for many years. I have been costuming for several years. I entered this challenge several years ago but think I have learned a lot since.
I am planning an outfit based on the Bronzino portrait of Eleonona di Toledo with her son Francesco dated 1549. My current plan includes: sottana, zimarra,camicia, calze, reta, partlet, girdle, saccoccia, and shoes.
