Italian Renaissance Gown: Back by Verdaera Italian Renaissance Gown: Back by Verdaera
This is my Italian Renaissance gown I made last year, based off a couple paintings that featured Giovanna Tornabuoni (or a sister of the same last name) wearing this gown. Took me a long while, but It came together pretty well. I love the train in the back. It's hard to move your arms in it, but I think that's to be expected with this type of gown... one who wore it would just stand around and look pretty anyway. I had to stitch the chemise in to get it to lay where I wanted it though.

Costume by me

This is so beautiful. I am wondering what type of pleats you used on the back. The effect is so lovely. Thanks.

I fav'd this a while back, but came across it again and wanted to comment - it's really, really beautiful! Great fabric choice, and that train is gorgeous.
Also, I wouldn't worry about stitching the chemise in place - that's why there were maidservants to sew you into your gown every morning and then pin the living daylights out of it =D

Aww, thank you! I did have fun making this one.

Well, I don't have my own maidservants, so stitching it is! I wish I did, I can't get into half my costumes by myself!

Lol yeah I learned to tie Victorian corsets behind my own back...I stopped short at sewing my own sleeves closed. Buttons are pretty, anyhow, and faster to do up! xD
