 Dress Diary: a 16th century Florentine gown
Since this is fairly close to my time of study, and because bodice construction appears to show few major changes during these 50 years, I decided to model my version on the outer and inner bodices from the Eleanora of Toledo gown featured in Janet Arnold's Patterns of Fashion.
To construct the bodice, I first sewed vertical channels over the entire front of the bodice, which was simply made from two layers of linen.
This canvas bodice definitely was a lot better, but it was very stiff and cone shaped, which I'm not sure is really as appropriate for Florentine styles before 1525, and I still had that stupid crease anyway.

If the bodice is similar to the bodice we have designed (and it is a basic design, not complicated) disregard the neck, skirt and sleeves.
