Lettice Knollys Elizabethan Gown
An Elizabethan ensemble of peacock blue and gold in the style of the 1560's. The project includes a set of stays (corset), farthingale, bum-roll, petticoat, forepart, overskirt, bodice, sleeves, earrings and a matching hat. The chemise worn with this gown was created for the Italian Renaissance Ensemble. The gown is of cotton sateen dyed by the artist, while the forepart and sleeves are of quilted gold silk. Hat and shoulder puffs of green silk. Jewelry photographed was not created by the artist, save the earrings.
All pieces were designed, drafted, and created by the artist for her role as Lettice Knollys at the 38th annual New York Renaissance Faire.
