I’m selling my Spanish Renaissance gown and accoutrements. It includes:
Gown: made of blue poly brocade. It is trimmed with blue and gold braid and handsewn gold and pearl beadwork. It has full sleeves that button on top with gold and pearly buttons. Bodice and sleeves are fully lined. Laces up the back with hand sewn eyelets.
Underskirt: made of dark blue cotton bottomweight. Visible section is faced with gold poly fabric with diamond pintucks accented with handsewn pearl details. Bottom is decorated with wide blue and gold trim. Ties at back with grosgrain ribbon waistband.
Corset: fully boned with cable ties. Bust section is unboned for comfort. Raw edges are all hand bound with grosgrain ribbon. Laces up in back with handsewn eyelets.
Chemise: falls to mid thigh length. Body is made of white cotton. Sleeves are white organza gathered into puffs with white and gold ties. Ties are tied to fit my arms but can be retied. Cuffs and neckline are trimmed with white cotton lace.
Partlet: made of white organza threaded with white and gold string. Neck gathers and ties with same type of cord. Trimmed with white cotton lace.
Hoopskirt: made of cream cotton. Hoops made from poly tubing which makes them flexible, squishable, and sturdy. Hoops will be compressed to ship so may need to be reshaped (stretch hoops around table or chair legs to make them properly circular). Waist gathers and ties with ribbon.
Frenchhood: made of matching brocade. Stiffened with heavy interfacing and wire. Trimmed with gold trim and hand sewn pearls. Back is white gathered cap.
Not included: pearl belt and pearl necklace
$175 including shipping to the us
Bust: 33-36. Waist: 23-28
Please send me a note if you are interested in buying it.
Gown and sundries are made sturdily. All raw edges are either serged or fray checked. Made more as a costume then clothes. Worn about 10 times.
I’ve decided to sell this as it’s a bit to gaudy for my current tastes and it takes up some room. This is a deal, you could easily spend $175 on the materials alone. Perfect for wearing to a renn faire, Halloween, costume ball/party, etc. I’d rather know someone was wearing and enjoying it then have it just sit in my closet.
