Overdress Mid-Italian Renaissance Costume

In these Photos you can see the two different trims used. The one for the belt and edge of the overdress has pink pearls, irregular garnets and two different metalic beads. The neckline trim has round garnet beads and two different metalic beads. In both cases the beads are sewn into depressions made by the trim. The belt trim is really made up to two trims a cream trim sewn over a light green trim. The belt clasp was from JHB. It was bright gold so, I darkened it with some black paint.
