Wool gauze gown based on the portrait of Anna Meyer in the Meyer Altarpiece by Hans Holbein. A simple Swiss style gown though with blackworked guards in the original. The bodice is lined in linen canvas with a separate full lining of a linen (ramie?).
This gown was fully handsewn.
After a house fire this gown was slightly discoloured due to smoke damage. It has been worn again as a Westfallen style gown. However it may be overdyed yellow eventually and new guards sewn on. The skirt has been repleated also.
