My Renaissance Gown
Lucrezia_Borja
I have a friend who works doing costumes for films, sometimes I asked her to make me some costume. This one was for a event I have. Under the white damask cloth its a silver gown...I can wear it, without the white part, or both together, have many possibilities...

Tudor costume
Lucrezia_Borja The same friend made this beautiful gown, it has pearls round the neck and I wear also a brassiere under the gown. It's made in three pieces just to be easier to wear it. I think I'm in love with it.

Burgundian houppelande

Burgundian houppelande
Juliana-Angela
I am a member of a re-enactment group, Schiltron, which specialises in the fifteenth century. I am not clever enough to make dresses (a friend makes them for me), but I make hats, bags and other accessories.

This dress is a Burgundian houppelande, the most popular style for ladies in Northern Europe from about 1460 to 1490. The dress is red velvet with a fabric collar and cuffs worn with a jewelled velvet belt. The hat, which matches the bag, is a butterfly hennin, also known as a flowerpot hennin because it is shaped like a flowerpot. The veil is held up on wires and allowed to fall in a 'butterfly' shape. It was fashionable from about 1470, and can be seen the the well-known portrait of Elizabeth Woodville, Queen of England from 1464 to 1483.

I'm totally agree with Kittywake, you look amaising in that dress, and, as I told you, the hat still impression me (Lucrezia_Borja)

Lucrezia_Borja My last dress. It's in green/turquoise and old gold...In the sleeves, it has blue ribbons...I am going to ask (to the same friend that make all of the gowns xD) for a renaissance shirt to put under...But I think it's wonderful right now...

My friend did it based on one that wears Natalie Dormer on the Tudors on 1st season ;)

Italian-style houppelande Juliana-Angela This is an Italian-style gown from around 1480. It is made of pale green brocade and has bell-shaped oversleeves which are detachable and held on by contrasting ribbons. The colour and fabric are similar to the dress worn by Isabella of Castile in the famous portrait from 1475, but this one has a high belt instead of a natural waistline. The sleeves are trimmed with fake fur.

The hat is the characteristic Italian balzo, or stuffed roll, which is trimmed with gold and silver ribbon and fake pearls.

Medieval banquet
Here are some of our re-enactment group before our banquet in Aberdeen on 2nd April 2011. It gives a longer view of the dress and the huge sleeves.

There are a variety of fourteenth and fifteenth century costumes on view here, from prosperous Renaissance housewives (Helen, third from left and Ruth, centre), to mid-fifteenth century noblewomen (Shirley, third from right), to the ubiquitous archers who were so important in the wars of the time (Phil, end right).

Mairin Florentine Gown butterflyfunkychic I have been in the SCA for 5 years and I have been making my own costumes for that long as well. Most people are astonished by the inexpensiveness that these lovely gowns can be achieved.

This gown was made from curtains, yes you heard right curtains. I love this shade of french blue and had trim that matches so I was determined to have something made up using the last of this wonderful items.

The gown is lined and has moderate boning and a corset is worn underneath as well as a gossamer embroidered chemise with black petticoat. I adorned my hair with a pearled snood and bedecked with jewels in my hair for effect. The design of the gown is inspired by the area of Florentine dress of 1530's to 1550's.
Sorry for my facial expression I just got to the faire and was uncomfortable traveling for two hours in a stuffed car. Though the gown looks great, we had a blast and that is all that matters.

What a lovely dress - it is amazing what you can do with old curtains (my red velvet was made from two charity shop pairs!)

Gold and Cream Venitian Gown
1495 Venitian drawing of a Lady
butterflyfunkychic This gown was inspired by the "Just Breathe: gown from Everafter. In my opinion had decent Italian costumes in the film. I also found the drawing below by Durer from 1495; of a Venitian lady. I fell in love with the gown and knew I had to make this gown someday and waited about a year before I found the appropriate fabric.

It is a cream and gold brocade gown with rose motif pattern and features several yards of gold venise lace. The gown was an exhisting size 6 dress that was empire waisted and fit like a glove. It was totally luck finding this gown so close to being the right shape to start. I bought it for less than 10 dollars. Cut off the puffy sleeves and repurposed the gown to be an Venitian gown. I added the lace, recycled the sleeve to be separate sleeves and added the venise lace trim. I wear a lace sleeeved chemise like in the photos, pearl earrings and necklace with this gown and a gold snood with the gown to complete the look. There is bonding in the gown that provides shape so I don't have to wear a corset. I hope to add photos of my in this gown soon.
