Renewal Gown~ Still Working It Out
With less than a month away from this event? I am still working the gown in my brainpan.
The Daughter of French Henri
I love this gown, this is a sketch (obviously) but we see this also in Isabel of Valois
Gods, I hope they clean up this portrait one day and show it!
Here is another gown of this fabulous lady, I love this showing the head piece and the cool neckline, and the separate picadils. I have the pearls and I need the necklace below I think I can make that or purchase it.
Do you see the embroidery? Okay so this one I think is smaller pearls I am using embroidery to make this pop and with the pearls in the larger piece, I will need to work with finding the perfect girdle as well.
Currently I have Silk Taffeta in White, for the lining, in Lavender for the Kirtle and in Silver for the Gown.
Do you see the pattern on the gown? I think my Husqvarna Diamond has something similar, I need to do some test pieces, I will be using silver thread to get the most impact on this kirtle. You can also see the
I need to sketch this out which is my next phase for me and then I am going to figure out the design for the kirtle which again is lavender silk taffeta. You can also see that this has been slashed to be very small holes. I don't know if I want to do that but I might stamp if I can find the perfect Leather piece so that it will make a great effect.
Also? You can see the kind of Fleur de Lys near her hand that was my inspiration. If I can find the leather piece that looks like a Tudor Rose? This will be my perfect effect since the Gown will have my Fleurs the Kirtle will have the Roses!!
Okay more later!
