I'm making yet another gown for an medieval/Renaissance event. This time, the gown is not for me but for a dear friend. This is the bodice to the gown shown with two different trims. I'm leaning towards the gold "lace" but I like the cream and gold scrollwork as well. I'm also playing with a third option - red velvet trim- which would look lovely agaisnt the green silk.
Any opinions? The style is that of Florence, circa 1510/1520. So, early 16th Century Italian. :-) Also, the lady I'm making this for is very tiny hence why it won't close on my dress form.
