Venitian gown by janey-jane Venitian gown by janey-jane
For all the watchers who have been with me from the beginning and who have probably been rolling their eyes at all the anime fanart for the past couple of years. I still love historic fashion, see!? :heart:

My front-lacing Venitian(ish) gown in ribbed silk inspired largely by a whole slew of Giovanni Antonio Fasolo frescoes. I wanted something a little cooler and less restrictive than my Elizabethan (Of which I need new photos, actually, I have 2 or 3 costuming projects that need to be photographed and posted) and of course since I insisted on fully lining both the gown and the petticoats I was dying of heatstroke anyway. Yay Texas.

I'm afraid I don't! I draft almost all of my historic patterns myself, and I use a combination of math and the highly technical process of "fudging it". :)

I saw this originally on Pinterest and immediately posted that I want want want. Did you use the Eliz corset generator for a starting point, or just use a bodice block you already had?

I have a personal bodice block that I have modified and tweaked over the years that I used, but I did indeed start out with the ECG bodice block. I find it's a great place to launch from; easy and it does all the work for you! But I'd definitely recommend doing a mock-up or giving yourself enough room to play around with the fit because I found that I am squishier in certain places and less squishy in others so the block needed to be both increased and decreased in places.

A lovely and clever design! So interesting to read about the challenges you encountered in the design and how you mastered them.

This is really exquisite! That rose color works wonderfully with your coloration.

thank you very much! I've had an antagonistic relationship with pink for a really long time (i'm naturally blonde and I worry I look like Barbie in pink), and I've only recently been warming up to it.
