Elizabethan Surcoat and Kirtle
Elizabethan Surcoat and Kirtle

This Surcoat was inspired by two of the surcoats in watercolors from the corners of a series on maps published in the 1572 called "Civitates Orbis Terrarum" by G. Braun et Hogenberg (Anvers and Barcelona) and a Titian painting. Also, of course the fabric.
