Saint Elizabeth of Hungary ca. 1365. Often pictured with roses, in connection with the story of a particular miracle. Whilst carrying bread to the poor in secret, Elisabeth was stopped and asked what she was carrying under her cloak. (She was susupected of stealing from the treasury) As she released her hold, it appeared to be nothing more than a vision of roses, and she was allowed to proceed.
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.
Clothing during the time of the renaissance looked like this. For the costumes in the 1500 they were elaborate and used pieces provided by the nobility. This is why I chose this dress. It is what the nobility might have worn which is where there costumes came from.
