White Toledo Gown
Twenty-eight pearl buttons line the sleeves, dozens of yards of trims, fine stitches. These are just some of the details in this reproduction of the gown worn by Eleanor of Toledo when she was laid to rest. Eleanor, wife of Grand Duke Cosimo I of the Italian Medici family, held a noble station in society which she showed in her clothes. Her sleeves are slashed and her Silk Chemise poufs through. Her bust line has been flattened and lifted by her Corset. Her Bumroll and Hoopskirt make her skirts lay larger to give the illusion of a smaller waist without the body alterations practiced by the Victorians. Made of cotton velveteen and lined in various satin and trim colors.
White German Gown
(Inset included in price) 2011 due to demand. This c. 1525 gown is made of two pieces: The outer gown of cotton velveteen is fully-lined in satin, and the inset of cotton velveteen. The inset is worn over the Classic Chemise. The reversible to black inset provides a lift for your bosom and holds in your tummy. The outer gown is then worn over the inset and chemise. It laces up the front ‘V,’ where the inset shows through. The forearms lace up to the elbow for a snug fit. Wear with a Classic Chemise (p. 15) designed to pouf through the slashes.
