Renaissance Wear

Please note: The items pictured on this page are examples of past work and are not themselves for sale. If you find one of these designs to be of interest, please contact Laurie to discuss creating one tailored to your needs.


A Tudor-era gown (English, circa 1560s) worn for a Renaissance themed wedding. Burgundy velvet trimmed with burgundy brocade and braid, underskirt of matching ivory brocade with applied trims. Sleeve detail at right. The sleeves were tied to the bodice of the gown to allow for puffing through of the chemise (underblouse) sleeves if desired. The chemise is of cotton muslin with ribbon threaded lace and burgundy embroidery on the cuffs and neckline. Faux pearl ropes were stitched to the bodice along with applied braid trim.
