Italian Gown Show Case on the Realm of Venus , this time with a late Italian Renaissance gown made for my friend Maria in 2009.
I am extremely honoured to again be placed with so many fine 'living history' couturiers.
The sleeves of this gown are also featured in all my publicity for The Tailor's Apprentice.
Make a gown similar to this in one of my classes, it would make a fairytale wedding gown in white velvet, with seed pearls and other semi-precious stones on the sleeves and bodice.
More images below, enjoy!
