1562 Florence: Bodice and skirt of actual dress Leonora of Toledo was buried in. A little macabre, but fascinating and VERY useful. Skirt front waistline is pointed, with 4 pleated sections. The high points between the sections are for loop-and-button attachment to the bodice. 1560 silk fabric was 22" wide, 8.5 yards were used, = 4.25 yards of 45" wide modern silk fabric.
