Red Venetian Gown

Oh yes, another Venetian. This one was based on a very specific image with some rather odd details. The ruffs on the shoulders aren’t like any I’ve seen elsewhere, but I decided to copy the image for looks rather than historical accuracy. The ruffs are made from wired ribbon that I tipped with gold beads. I couldn’t figure out how to recreate the standing ruff at her neck in the inspiration image, so I went with something similar to the shoulder ruffs instead. I do think it frames my face nicely.
