I just love this illustration, don’t you?
|Gennady Spirin. Illustration from ‘The White Cat”|
So I’ve been reading Jean Hunnisett’s Period Costume for Stage & Screen: Patterns for Women’s Dress 1500-1800, and recalling the incredible costumes of Elizabeth R (1971), which I saw not too long ago. So much drool! It has made me want to strike up a conversation with a fanciful Elizabethan gown again.
The book makes these complicated costumes seem easy!

I won't tell you what QEI is supposed to have done to many cats upon her coronation. It made me not like her for a while.
If you'd like to try your hand at Elizabethan costuming, may I suggest QEI's Wardrobe Unlocked – it doesn't really have patterns as much as it has an overload of information.
