The Giornea is finished but...

The green giornea is finished (pictures coming soon), and a new one started since I want to have at least two of them, BUT... now I have decided that I need new garb. I need new garb from a new era. Specifically around the 1540's in Florence.

I still plan to have a few gowns from the 1480's, especially with having the two giorneas, but have decided that I really prefer the later look.
Now all I need to do is continue the research, learn to cartridge pleat, and start planning what fabrics I will use. I have a pretty cream jacquard that is cotton that I think will do nicely, as well as some gold fabric. I am trying so hard to be good and not buy more fabric, but it is soooo hard.
