c1440 Italian Renaissance costumed doll - beautifully done and good historical accuracy - showcasing leaf-shaped dagging of the sleeves ... Might be on a doll but I'm drooling over it to wear it! #renaissance #garb
Oh, how beautiful! Wish I could see what painting this comes from. Sleeve lining. Laced oversleeves - not a functional detail, must be just to make the look adjustable, maybe for fit? Interesting neckline and front closures - visible chemise, but not green underdress (green sleeves separate, or pinned under red oversleeves?)
Likely Italian, late 1500s. the upper sleeve is much longer than I've ever seen, interesting to know if each is a separate section or long panes with 3 parts couched down with buttons. I have a feeling this is caused by the painter's less than expert use of perspective.
1528- 16th Century style dress from the Northern Renaissance period. It has a square neckline which was very common and you can see the edge of the chemise. The sleeves varied in many styles, but here you see wide funnel shaped sleeves with contrasting lines.
Francesco Petrarca or Petrarch. 1304-1374. He was an Aretine scholar and a poet. This man is often called the "Father of Humanism".Petrarch's rediscovery of Cicero's letters is often credited for initiating the 14th-century Renaissance. His sonnets became popular in the Renaissance and became a model for lyrical poetry.
