Front & Back View Mid-Italian Renaissance Costume

This is a very basic Italian Ren Women's dress. You can't tell in this photo but the black fabric has a motif. The lacings are all gold cord. The lacings on the sleeves have gold charm like beads for weight. The belt has two rows of gold flat braided trim. The chemise is cream silk. The trick to getting a good puffs on the chemise is to make the chemise sleeve wider and longer than a regular sleeve.
