The Italian Lady's Underpinnings
For years, our customers have been clamoring for Italian Renaissance patterns. We are delighted to announce the first of our Italian Renaissance Lady's Ensemble: The Italian Renaissance Lady's Underpinnings, suitable for the years 1570-1600.
The Italian Lady's Underpinnings package includes the same detailed research and documentation that made our Elizabethan and Tudor patterns famous. It includes:
Petticoat, plain or rope stiffened
The patterns are multi-sized from 2 to 30.
In addition, the package comes with extensive instructions: 100 pages of fully illustrated text, 3-hole punched for insertion in a binder. This includes instruction in advanced sewing and costuming techniques, appendices, sizing and measuring charts, a detailed bibliography, and an attractive cover insert.
"Margo's pattern is the most comfortable corset
I have ever worn. There is no slouching in the ones I have made, and
I always feel as though I have the proper silhouette for the period
and the high noble gowns that I wear."
"These patterns are just beautiful! and the
instructions... whoa - very nicely done. I love the fact that they're
8x11, with enough whitespace for me to write in my own notes... thanks
again for such a beautiful and enormous project."
