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

Interesting detail of gown sleeve and hair style!

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.

The Renaissance was a cultural movement that spanned roughly the 14th through the 17th century, beginning in Italy in the late Middle Ages and later spreading to the rest of Europe. It encompassed the revival of learning based on classical sources, the rise of courtly and papal patronage, the development of perspective in painting, and advancements in science. The Renaissance had wide-ranging consequences in all intellectual pursuits, but is perhaps best known for its artistic aspect and the contributions of such polymaths as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, who have inspired the term "Renaissance men".

(Speculating it's Italian), late 1500s. Interesting in the lack of as many ruffles as I've seen.

Ghirlandaio - Interested in making on of these connected sleeve dress like the blue and darker navy in the back. Don't see those as often. Earlier period?

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. The sleeves on the golden gown has several rows of slash and pulled fabric.-- Darc
