Tudor Dress Hand sewn

SO I have hand sewn the skirt to the bodice and shoulder straps to the bodice as well. I found the gold and red braid I laying around and decided it would make a perfect addition. My questions now are what color under skirt looks best. I have a gold one that is made up of a gold piece of crushed panne velvet overlaid with gold organza I also thought of just doing a red the same color as the dress. Any opinions?

new Project: Red Tudor Dress II

Here is everything Pinned together. I love doing this because I can catch a glimpse of the future gown. This is really turning out better than planned.

New Project: Red Tudor Dress

So I know it's only an unfinished bodice but I have the overskirt sewn together as well but I bummed up my knee so I can't do as much. I made the front really stiff by putting a painting stir stick down the center, sewn in. The Dress will all be the dark red and I hope to do some really fun extensive beading all over the front bodice piece. I have a black and Creme one that I hope to start soon as well.

Ann, Duchess of Hartford

At last the Dress is Finished and this is me at the RenFaire this past weekend. I was concerned about the hem, that it would be too short or too long, well it was absolutely perfect. I have to say i am very pleased with the way it all turned out. My Friend Marilyn made the hat and Snood to match and I absolutely adorn it. Thanks everyone who helped or added something to my outfit.

Boleyn Dress update

I have the back all laced up now, the pearls and trim hand sewn on and the sleeves are attached but I am working on re enforcing them to make sure they stay secure. I think I have figured out the farthingale issue and hopefully will have it finished this week for the talent audition.
