RE: [Italian Renaissance Costuming] up-date on my dress
- I am in agreement with Adele. From what I have seen of this style is a dress
under a dress. Though there is one theory that in some cases there may have
been separate under bodice and underskirt when the under garment was in two
colors. But no inset/panel/plastron AFAIK.
Depends on what you are calling tapestry. Most modern "tapestry" material
that I have seen look to be Victorian in style and not of the 1500s.

is worn over a full undergown, not a seperate underskirt.
