I'm a theatre major at school and just finished up my costume construction class.  For the final project we had to make a period piece.  Here is what I came up with using a McCall's pattern that I forgot the number of  Roll Eyes

Please ignore the wonky fit, it's meant for someone with a smaller chest than mine!

Oh and ignore the electric blue bra peeking out  Tongue

This was my first time making sleeves and using grommets so I'm quite pleased but I'm also glad it's over, I'm not a huge fan of patterns and I'd much rather be sewing stuff for me to wear! Cheesy

Let me know what ya think!

Looks great!  Early Renaissance Florentine?

I really hate how all these commercial sites use conflicting tags!  I Google "Renaissance Italian dress" or "Renaissance Florentine dress" and I get back all these images of dresses that are NOT.  Half of them aren't even remotely properly historical, and they even tag them as period!  I guess it gets them more hits, but it annoys me.

Wow, this is wonderful! Great job. I would like to make something using grommets at some point. I like when the backs of garments have an interesting look to them too and yours definitely does!
