Some females would also adorn a sash across the shoulder and waist. This style of dress came in three separate pieces, the bodice, the overcoat, and the skirt. This was a time of simplicity in fashion. The ornate details didn’t show as much nor did the high collars carry forward through this time period.

    silks and soft velvet. I wanted Elizabeth’s dress to emulate this grandeur and expand my sewing skills a little, so I sketched a few dresses and decided on the one with a ruffled collar, puffed sleeves and a wide skirt. I started on the simplest part, the bodice. To mock the elongated, corseted torso of Elizabethan fashion, I sewed a triangular piece floral-patterned fabric against the plain, dark green fabric to draw the eye downwards and shrink the waist. Afterwards, I sewed snap buttons…

Instead of making cake, I made the largest jello using a Berry Blue Jell-o pack along with a bit of coconut gelatin.
