This dress was designed after a famous Alessandro Allori portrait of Eleonora di Don Garzia di Toledo di Pietro de' Medici. It has a bodice reinforced by plastic bones, so it can be worn both on corset or without it. Sleeves' puffs are decorated with white organza imitating chemise. The golden sleeves are laced to the bodice separately, which is historically correct for 16th century costume. The golden petticoat can vary in fabrics and colors and could be worn separately. Dress closes in the front with small hooks.
The dress was fashioned to be worn over the proper undergarments of the times (corset and chemise, which are not included with this sale). This costume will be perfect for a period photosession, ball or wedding.
A costume copy of different materials, colors and sizes is available, as well as a new custom costume made after your sketch.
Please mention, that corset and other undergarments should be ordered separately.
Materials used: taffeta, synthetic jacquard, linen back, braid, organza, plastic bones.
