1630 Jane Countess of Winchester by Gilbert Jackson (Lane Fine Art)
The upper sleeves interest me. Actually the whole dress does. Fabric, edging, and all.
Those sleeves are awesome.
(Speculating it's Italian), late 1500s. Interesting in the lack of as many ruffles as I've seen.
Detail from St George and the Dragon, by Jost Haller commons.wikimedia.... The lacing oversleeves are interesting, as is the front closure.
Another interesting contemporary costume study, this time by Hans Holbein the Younger. It’s very unusual to see women’s shoes in Medieval and Renaissance artwork, making information about them scarce.
Saint Elizabeth of Hungary ca. 1365 - Interesting gown with tippets and lots of heraldry.
Dressing the Italian way Interesting notes: the hem line is bound with a bias tape. This is one of the few views of the back of a doublet. The underskirt has train.
That's really interesting.
Italian Renaissance Dress - interesting with the slashes across the top of the bodice. Warrants more research
