The Lady in Green

One can never have to many clothes, and green is a favorite color. This Italian Renaissance style gown is a unique design. Starting with a new long sleeved chemise, in a cream color, with a gathered bodice and a slightly full skirt. Her under-dress is green silk and has the gathered bodice and short puffy sleeves that were popular at that time.  She can wear the overdress in two ways. With the long skirt attached or as the short bolero style jacket with the combined sleeve, full at top and long tight fitting below.
  She never looked better, to perhaps see her long awaited love. Of course at this age it was still yet a dream to come.
