c.1580s Underpinnings by Velven c.1580s Underpinnings by Velven
I took some better pictures of this costume recently, and I realised I never uploaded pictures of the undergarments!

You can get more details (including why these are based on earlier fashionable styles)from my comments on the dress, but this is the linen smock and boned kirtle that go underneath. The kirtle is in buff coloured linen lined and interlined with cotton and linen and has an acetate taffeta forepart and panels around the neckline where it might be seen beneath the gown.

This is so pro! If I knew my way around the needle, this is the sort of thing I'd be making!

Well the smock on the left is probabaly one of the easiest things I've ever made, it's basically just a lot of rectangles of different sizes. I'm always impressed by medieval tailors who always seemed to find the easiest configuration of shapes to make a garment! :D
