This gown was made to fit my 9 year old niece, because girls of that age usually
don't have the kind of waist that will hold up a heavy Elizabethan skirt, I
decided to attach the skirt to an underbodice. I also decided to add a built
in petticoat to the underbodice, you can see that in the first picture. The
underbodice laces down the center back and the overbodice laces down the side
backs. I'm still working on a french hood with a matching beaded hair bag so,
the hood shown in the last picture is a back up French hood.
