The upper sleeves interest me. Actually the whole dress does. Fabric, edging, and all.

Interesting sleeves on this 15th c. garment.

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.

(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.

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.

Awesome take on the blue jean skirt

Herjolfsnes No. 39 women's well preserved dress, late 14th century, National Museum of Denmark, Kopenhagen

Portrait of a Woman, possibly Ginevra d'Antonio Lupari Gozzadini Attributed to the Maestro delle Storie del Pane (Italian (Emilian), active late 15th century) ca. 1485-95

A Young Girl in Profile in Renaissance Dress. For centuries, people thought this painting was the work of a 19th century German artist imitating the renaissance style. Then, in 2009, a fingerprint was discovered on the upper left-hand corner of the painting that is believed to be Leonardo da Vinci's. If this really is one of his paintings - and it looks like it is - it will be the first new Da Vinci work discovered in a century. It amazes me when art and science collide like this.
