Elizabethan Gown

An Elizabethan noblewoman required a corset, a hoopskirt, and a bumroll to not only achieve the desired silhouette, but to support the weight of the fabric and jewels on the clothing. A middle-class women could forego the bumroll, but she still required the corset and hoop. There are a myriad of variations on sleeve and hat styles, but the basic line is a square necked, v-dropped bodice, and a full, deeply-pleated skirt. Price range $350.00 and up, not including the underpinnings.

“It is the MOST breathtakingly beautiful dress I have ever laid eyes on (and owned). Words cannot do justice to the splendor of the garment. It's a great joy to see those fabric and lace swatches we ruminated upon, transformed into such a work of art. As always, you are magnificent. PERFECT FIT!! Now I know how good Queen Bess felt all the time, dressed in those heavy rich brocades. A very good feeling, indeed.”
Mary S., from Singapore, who commissioned this gown for her wedding in 2004.
