New and better photos of an older project, worn to the Tampa Bay Ren Faire at Mosi in 2010.
Which time period?
Hi, this style of gown was worn in Venice roughly from the 1550's up through the 1580's with some variants on style, accessories and fabric. Mine is based on several paintings from around the 1570.
i have to say, i've never been too fond of the venetian style, but i am really drawn to this dress. very nice!
Is the ropa new?
The ropa/zimarra isn't 100% new. I made it sometime ago and it sat unhemmed for a time, then it finally got hemmed and worn once before, but I never got around to getting any photos of it other then ones on the dress form.
