Red Venetian renaissance dress

  The dress was inspired by the Venetian fashions in 1570-1580. We used sewing techniques and patterns of similar existing garments, such as the garments fully described in Janet Arnold, Patterns of Fashion.
  The fabric used for this dress is a 100% silk damask with a gold and red weave. The bodice is boned and lined with a white linen. A thinner linen is also used for lining the sleeves, which have silk ribbons with points that are tied to the bodice. The skirt is attached to the bodice by cartridge pleating – a period technique for gathering large amounts of fabric to a small circumference. A part of the costume is also the camicia – a wide italian chemise, fully gathered at the neckline and wrists and embellished with a fine bobbin lace.
