|Black brocade gown with Jacket||page 1 2|
is one of my favorite outfits. It originally was a newbe attempt at Tudor.
While the materials were great the technique was.... not one of my best
efforts. I could not bring myself to closet it forever, so it was
I cannibalized an equally horrid overcoat of the same brocade that I had made for my husband. I fashioned a jacket. After redoing the underskirt, I was able do get enough gold brocade to make the under sleeves.. The sleeves attach to the old bodice which is hidden by the jacket, except in the front where the beading is exposed. I also pearled the black and gold trim.
