Commission: Blue Dress
These photos are all of a commissioned dress based (very loosely) on some of those seen in recent Tudor films. It's incomplete as yet, missing the huge silk velvet sleeves (which will be attached to the existing sleeve with small buttons). The velvet sleeves were to be separate for cleaning purposes as the rest of the dress is made of reasonably durable fake silk. It should, in theory, also be worn with more petticoats, but there was nothing available on short notice. The underskirt is a thick polyester brocade.
