Tudor silk and cotton gown by dragonariaes Tudor silk and cotton gown by dragonariaes
This gown is made out of embroidered and woven silk, striped woven cotton and velvet with some polyester lacing and brass grommets.

The top is fully boned and laces on the sides and back, allowing for full adjustment for a good fit. The skirt is not attached, but has a solid waistband that sits underneath the edge of the top.
The grommets are not period accurate, but they will make the dress hold up to heavy wearing without having to do repairs on the stitched holes that would be there. For more authenticity, they can be covered up by tatting or satin stitching.

Shoulder pieces are laced and can be tied in several ways. They can be worn over the shoulder, off the shoulder, or folded in half and tied to the sleeves so there is no over shoulder piece visible at all. Sleeves are fully detachable, with inside ribbon ties for adjustment.

Chemise with an off white cotton eyelet.

I forgot to take a picture of the matching headdress.

Made for :iconmandilily1013: Hope you love it. :heart: :heart:

Yes. I did up a couple of different designs and ended up mixing and matching parts of two of them. Made the pattern, made the dress. ^^
