An Elizabethan costume loosely based on the Pelican Portrait of Queen Elizabeth I. I used the Simplicity pattern for the skirts but drafted the patterns for the corset, dress, and undershirt myself. I have uploaded the pics (sorry so many!) in the order it is put on, with some detail shots thrown in along with the painting that was the inspiration.
