Eleanor of Toledo's Gowns

I have always adored the clothing Eleanor of Toledo a fellow Spainard (I know I have 11 races so I can claim whom I choose LOL).

She married and had I think 11 living children, I don't know how many pregnancies though and I have heard her hips were distorted because of the child birth.  Can you imagine?
Amyway she was a fashonista supreme, here are some thoughts I am thinking about making a gown inspired by her.

Meet Eleanor of Toledo

Here is a close up of the ties to the sleeve with agilets that are gold balls or beads, also notice the lovely goldwork
