This gown is already made, was worn to one event, and has been washed - so the price has been reduced accordingly!
This is a late 16th-century style gown, made in cotton velveteen with a cotton damask underskirt & sleeve lining. It was made to fit a woman with a 35" Bust and 29" Waist - but it is adjustable by an inch or so in either direction because of the side lacing. The shoulder straps are sewn on in such a way that they could be repositioned without too much effort (you'd need a seam ripper and a needle and thread). The underskirt has been hemmed at roughly 43" from the waist over a bumroll and farthingale, the overskirt is hemmed at roughly 42". There are about 3" of fabric in the hems of each skirt, so you could let them out if needed.
The red cotton velveteen Bodice laces up the sides, is lined in dark red cotton broadcloth, & has 5 boning channels sewn into the inside of the Bodice (so that the plastic boning is removable). There is no other boning; the gown is intended to be worn over your corset or boned kirtle. The blue/gold trim is sewn on by machine & there are black metal eyelets. There is no other visible machine stitching.
The gathered Overskirt is separate from the bodice and ties at the front. The gold bow cotton damask Underskirt is knife-pleated onto a fitted waistband & ties in back. Note that the pattern on the fabric is charming, but not terribly historical. It would be fun for most faire-wear, or most theatrical purposes, but probably not for SCA. Neither skirt is lined, but all seams are finished.
The long hanging red cotton velveteen Sleeves are lined in the same cotton damask fabric as the Underskirt & are trimmed in the same blue/gold trim as the bodice and overskirt. The Sleeves are detachable & tie on small rings under the shoulder straps of the gown.
