About this Costume
Construction Details:
I 50/50 attempted to be historically accurate with the actual construction. Everything was made by me. The shift is real linen and made with a historical pattern. I added pre-made embroidery that I cut out of organza onto the sleeves. The bodice is steel boned and stiffened with duck cloth. The skirts are tubes pleated at the waist. I made the jacquard gold piping myself. The velvet cape is lined with real rabbit fur, and the applique satin stitched by me with same gold jacquard.
Personal Thoughts:
I chose a standard Italian renaissance style to make my own version of Merida, just something to make is interesting and different!
