late 1630 gown
Added Jul 23, 2014
For last year venice carnevale I wanted a 1600 look so I decided to recreate a gown rom a van dyck’s painting of his wife Mary Ruthven.
It’s a separate skirt and bodice. I used lots of notion like glass stones, false pearls for decoration, and boningto have the right fit.
I used Janet Arnold pattern for the bodice
