Suzanne Egan
Tasmania, Australia

Salutations, I have been an active member of the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA) for just over 15 years, where I am known as The Honourable Lady Alessandra di Fiore di Piero della Mora. My focus within the society has been 15th Century Florentine and I have made three outfits in this style; however, I will be branching out into 16th Century with this challenge.


My inspiration portrait is Bianca Capello de’Medici by Alessandro Allori, although I will be pulling other aspects from other similar portraits of the time as needed. Especially as this is not a full-length portrait.

The items I plan to make are

  • Drawers and camica and pair of bodies making my underwear layer
  • Undergown with sleeves
  • Overgown
  • Partlet
  • An embroidered pocket
  • Necklace and earrings
  • Drawn thread work handkerchief
  • A muff
  • And the hair ornamentation/head piece
