Crimson and Burgundy Elizabethan Gown
Crimson and Burgundy Elizabethan Gown

This gown was one of those quick and dirty gowns put together in a month, with is very rare. The metallic embroidered trim is amazingly an" iron on" trim. It worked well for this gown because a ribbon trim would not have been able to follow the shapes necessary without a lot of seams and easing. The bodice is based on the shape and decoration of a bodice featured in Janet Arnold's "Patterns of Fashion". It was the gown that Elinora of Toledo was buried in.
