Ship of Fools- Italian Renaissance outfit

This was part of my graduate thesis project about a year ago. It was made acording to opera standards, with lots of seam allowance and good seam placement for alterability. It's also super supportive with heavy boning, a canvas interlining, and lacing at the back.

I beaded a fabric belt from Target that I found in the same colors as the dress fabric, and made the necklace from jewelry findings. Sometimes in theatre it's about how much you can do with very little. Not bad for my first draping project!
