$40.00 (Calif. add sales tax)

At last, The Italian Renaissance Lady’s Wardrobe pattern is here! After extensive research, we have created a pattern suitable for making women’s clothing of 1530-1600 Italy.

The Italian Lady's Wardrobe package includes the same detailed research and documentation that made our Elizabethan and Tudor patterns famous. It includes:

  • The Sottana (dress) with five bodice styles, pleated or gathered skirt and optional train

  • Seven sleeve styles

  • Camicia

  • Flag Fan

    The patterns are multi-sized from 2 to 30.

    In addition, the package comes with extensive instructions: 170 pages of fully illustrated text, 3-hole punched for insertion in a binder. This includes instruction in advanced sewing and costuming techniques, trim suggestions, and much more. As some of our customers have said, the manual alone is worth the price of the package.

  • "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."
     - Mary Lou, about the First Edition.

    "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."
      - Joyce
