Renaissance MD Gown
nspired by Renaissance fashion, this long, form-fitted Renaissance gown is made from a burgundy velvet and is accented with gold-colored trim on the arms and waist and gold satin lining on the arm tippets. There is also a gold satin panel inset in the front of the velvet skirt. The sleeves feature satin-lined tippets hanging down from the upper arm and a more fitted lower arm. The sleeves and skirt give the look of wearing both an over- and under-dress. The Renaissance dress is fitted at the waist and bodice and then flares out from the hips in a skirt that drapes beautifully. The velvet of the dress is a regular, smooth velvet (it is NOT crushed or panne velvet). The back of the gown closes with a zipper.

*Still trying to decide on your size? Here is a helpful hint on fitting yourself for this gown: most of the measurements here are somewhat flexible because the velvet in the dress has a slight give to it and can stretch to accommodate a few inches here or there. But the WAIST measurement does NOT stretch because there is a non-stretchy ribbon trim around the waistline (see the above pictures). So if you have to pick one measurement to stick with, it is the waist measurement. If you have questions about which size is right for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
