Robe à la polonaise made of dark purple taffeta with white stomacher. I'm wearing an old petticoat because I didn't manage to sew a matching petticoat in time for the event to which I wanted to wear this dress. The picture is quite small and the quality isn't the best because it was taken in a place that was only candle-lit.
Recently completed 14th century medieval gown. This is a female cotehardie, made of velvet and silk with beaded details and handmade buttons. The hat is a tressour crispinette, made of silk with pearls.
Photoshoot by Kostya Sirotkin LARP " Between eagles and crescent", Ukraine 2010 The dress is the stylization of 16th century. The whole costume consists of: crinoline, fatin skirt, blue skirt, blue corset(steel and plastic bonning), black upper skirt, black overcorset, undervest and pantaloons
I made this a few weeks ago, as a last minute decision that I absolutely needed at least one more dress for Pennsic. I got most of the bodice done at home, but did all the skirt and finishing while I was at the event. Some in progress pictures here: [link]
The fabric is a moderately heavy cotton that I dyed orange (it was previously white). I ment to go for an deep rusty golden yellow sort of color, but I added a bit too much red. But I am pretty happy with it as a completed dress.
The way I accessorized it is rather more like the Italian 1580's than 1530ish German style, but that's what I had with me at the time. I am really happy with how it came out!
This is yet another dress that I really should add sewn in sleeves onto, since it would be more typical of this style of dress.
