Lisette of Three Rivers

Location: Barony of Three Rivers, Calontir

Category/Level: Modern Recreationist/Intermediate

About Lisette: I have been in the SCA for about a year and a half and sewing for about two years longer still. I sew quite a bit now, but all of the garb I’ve made has been in a very feminine style. I’ve never made pants before, so this outfit will be a bit of a challenge because it is a more masculine style (and includes pants!). The outfit, once complete, will tie in with my (mostly) italian courtesan persona.

Her Project: I plan to make a Venetian courtesan outfit. There are descriptions of many Venetian women, courtesans and not, “apparrelled like Men, in a doublet close to the body, and large breeches open at the knees, after the Spanish fashion, both of carnation silke or satten” (Fynes Moryson’s Itinerary c. 1590). For my entry I will make an undershirt, doublet and breeches, a cloak, snood and jewelry in the style described by Moryson.
