High Renaissance Fashion
Here is an excellent example of ladies garb from the period of the Landsknechten. Take note of the curved cut of the front opening of the bodice, around the sides of the stomacher. Those "German's," they hated strait lines. Also she has beautiful sleeves. The patterns on the hem of her skirt are embroidered and applique and excellent. These two outfits are from the same decade only separated by geography, Lady Gabija von Ahornwald is wearing a "German" outfit popular in large cities and I am in English outfit wearing that famous Landsknecht hat of mine.
