I have been searching, I love the 1560/70's Gowns, which are my favorite time in England, because while at A&S in the West Kingdom, I found out someone I know would be stepping up to be a Laurel. Sarah Woodville! I am so very excited for her! I wanted to show my support and when I found out she wanted people to dress in Black/White in the 1560 to 1570's? Well It was kismet! I mean my favorite time period and I had 10 yards of Black on black Fleur de Lys fabric, and 7 yards of white damask as well. I did not have the trim I wanted to I had to order from Calon Tir Trim.
Here is my drawing of what my 12th Night Gown will look like! It is very much simplistic, and I hope still lovely.
So this is my kirtle top, and I am using my tried and true pattern from Margo and then it is onto the sleeves! I typically make my sleeves first but I thought I would play with the bodice first since I have to get the trim on it forever.
