1570's Lady's Elizabethan Court Costume
1570's Lady's Elizabethan Court Costume

This costume started it all, it was my first Elizabethan Costume. It has seen better days and is very Faire worn. When I made this costume I did some research but I know so much more now. As my knowledge and skills grew the costume changed over the years, there were major changes to the trim, sleeves, foreskirt and jewelry. I have posted some of the early photos of the costume so that everyone can see that "costuming is a process". Most of these photos were taken without the ruff, which is a very important part of Elizabethan dress but sorry, it has been torn apart for repairs.
