circa 15th century

Completed: October 2006
Worn at: Photoshoot
Why I chose this costume: Sometimes its something as simple as a sleeve which inspires me, which this was very much the case. I really liked the tabbed look of the detachable sleeves, and lace-up cuffs, and couldn't resist. This gown is worn with a puffy-sleeved chemise underneath.


Love the sleeves!  I really like the fact that you can see the chemise underneath, poking through the sleeves.
