A work in progress, please forgive the hasty photography. The gown itself is finished but will be part of an ensemble with a hooded cape and traditional Venetian mask with a celestial or crescent moon decoration. White silk taffeta with fine silver lace, freshwater pearls and glass beads. In the style of 1660s gowns but with a conical straight front rather than curved, and cartridge pleats go all the way around the armscye. All the pleats were stitched by hand.
