Materials Pile

Hello! Here are my starting materials.

My materials include light blue cotton velvet, 3 oz white linen, and gold and blue brocade cloth. Any lining for the bodice will be down with a 5 oz white linen. I have gold thread for some of the goldwork I plan. I’m hoping to reproduce the necklace as well, and have purchased a brass blank to be the basis of this.

My gown will be a reproduction of the left gown, under Sophia. In the center we see the year is 1532.

Sophia is rocking a Goldhaube, which I shall also reproduce. I plan to use pearls and gold embroidery on the Goldhaube.

Well, that all sounds like a big plan. I better get to work!

Yours in Service,

Lady Cecelie Vogelgesangkin

    Greetings! I am Kay, one of your judges team.
    Thank you for the images. It is so helpful to see what the seamstress is planning.
    Am I correct in picturing your brocade as the bands on the skirt?

    Be well!

    Yes! The brocade is for bands and trim, the dress will primarily be made of the blue velvet cotton.
