Elizabethan Gown WIP by janey-jane Elizabethan Gown WIP by janey-jane
This is the gown I made for this year's Texas RenFest. It is most definitely a work in progress, but because I'm always strapped for time I feel quite proud that it was wearable in time.

Eventually I plan on making detachable shoulder rolls and sleeves to be worn with it, and embellishing the bodice (see one of my inspirations for the dress here [link] )Detachable because I also want to make a doublet to be worn over it if I so choose (something like the dorothea sabina von neuberg gown).

There are still some construction issues that need to be taken care of, and I'll need a new corset since the one I have on in this shot is too low in front. Also please ignore my shabby old chemise... it was tossed together at the last minute several years ago and I've never gotten around to making a new one.

er....thats all for now!

I wish I could make them for everyone. It would be an awesome way to make a living. Also I would love to shower the world with awesome costumes. the more costumes in the world the better.

Gorgeous! I love the placement of the stripes at the diagonal on the bodice - it really emphasizes your waist! I can’t wait to see more pictures of this gown with embellishments – though it’s beautiful as it is at the moment!!!

they are very expensive! Even to make them they cost a lot. Costuming is an expensive hobby :(

Yeah! :( I sometimes wish I have a magic wand to put me in a costume in an instant.
