I plan on making a beautiful italian style gown from this time period..and i can not find cloth for the life of me to use for this kind of dress.
I know basing my dress off the dresses they have in the showtime series the borgias might make some people un happy...I hear there are in accuracys.
BUT..I love this show to death due to my love of researching the borgia family.
I need help in finding fabrics that are heavy eight enough to make a sturdy dress..but still look like the fabric used in these dresses.
I would prefer rich jewel tone fabrics..reds most likely but also a color like Guila Farnese's dress in the last picture would be wonderful.
but any fabric place that sells the correct material would be wonderful and i can do my color picking from there.
