The dress is done!

I spent most of Thursday finishing up all the fiddly stuff like sewing on the pearls and adding the points (ties) and aglettes to tie on the sleeves. Friday morning I shortened the hem a bit and added a velveteen guard to protect the light colored fabric from mud stains. I'll get some photos of me in the gown tomorrow at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. :)
btw- If anyone has any tips on hairstyles or headcoverings from mid 16th century Florence that will work for someone with very short hair please share! LOL
