Greetings, I am Lady Anjuili d’ Foljambe and I call the Barony of Stonemarche my home. I have been in the SCA for a very long time. I love making garb, I have made most of my own and my family’s for the entire time I have been in the SCA. I also was keeper of Stonemarche’s Gold Key for many years. I have been doing more research and making more period correct garb in the last 8 or 9 years than I have in the past. I have participated in the Birka Fashion show for a few years now. This will be my second garb challenge. I and a few friends competed in golden seamstress in 2018 and had a blast.
My plan is to make an Italian Renaissance gown from Florence in about the 1500’s era. My gown is based on multiple portraits from the Florentine school and all the portraits were dated within three years of each other. For the most part it will be based on the portrait of Vittoria Colonna (A) but I feel a contrasting front panel would be more flattering, as well as the pane sleeves with the contrasting lower sleeve.
In addition to the gown I will be making a smocked camica. Smocking will be a totally new skill for me as I have never done it except for sitting in on a class where they were out of materials. Woven hose will also be a first time item but something I have been thinking about for a while to make my garb just a bit more complete. I will be making new bloomers as I find them much more comfortable under layers of garb and I need a new pair. I will also make a partlet, veil and cap to complete the outfit.
