I have been sewing since a small child, but about 13 years ago I found the Realm of Venus site and fell in love with 16th century Italy. I have focused on Florence ever since!

 


My main project for the challenge will be recreating the red velvet Pisa gown. Planned layers include:

  • camicia
  • underskirt
  • gown with sleeves
  • drawers
  • partlet
  • necklace and earring set
  • girdle belt
  • garters
  • stockings
  • pocket.

 

Handwork begun: embroidery on the camicia. The cuffs have not been cut to a measurement , only for the purpose of hooping.
