I made a copy of a gown in the Janet Arnold Book, Patterns of Fashion, 1560-1620. It is a loose gown made of black velvet, and embellished with bands of satin edged in silk cording. The matching kirtle is made of white satin, and embroidered with black silk stylized flowers and metal spangles. I have attached the documentation I submitted with the dress for A&S! It is actually in two files because the file was so large.
