Category/Level: Historically Focused/Intermediate

About : I have been in the SCA for 40 years, and have sewn for even longer. However, I have only been trying to be more historically accurate for the last 10 or so years. I do mostly fiber arts, but am also interested in woodworking and scribal arts.

Project: This is for a 16th century Italian middle class/lower upper class woman. I am basing my outfit from a painting by Lorenzo Lotto. Portrait of a Woman inspired by Lucretia. This is an outfit that has intrigued me for years, so this may finally inspire me to try to create it.

About Lorenzo : I have been in the SCA off and on since 2005. I love to sew, although I would say my skills are great. It is very relaxing to me and I love to see an outfit come together. It is important to me that as I progress in the SCA to wear outfits that are more appropriate to what my persona would have worn in period, even if the methods and materials are not period.. yet. I am a brewer, a bard, someone who make jewelry, an archer and thrower of knives..

His Project: My persona has shifted in the last year in terms of century so my plans are to make an outfit that would have existed in the Iberian Peninsula roughly mid 1400s. I’ll be researching historical paintings to base it off of. My skills are beginner to intermediate and I’ll be using modern materials and sewing techniques to construct it. My hope is that at the end I’ll have my first piece of garb from that time period for my persona.
