Plans!

Oh right, Costume College!  I thought that was like 7 months from now, but it turns out it is just around the corner!  Fun fact:  100% of my costumes, fabric, and sewing supplies are totally inaccessabile in the back of my storage unit!  YAY!

But there is one thing I didn't store, because I was worried about it being damaged, and that is 9 yards of a magnificent grey velvet.  You know what costume I've always wanted to do?  The Grey Lady from Harry Potter!  And hey, isn't the theme this year something about literature?  YAY!  Thank you fates, for smiling on me this once.

Yeah, but here's the thing:  I know approximately dick about anything prior to about 1740.  So....what the hell is this dress, anyway?



Is this Italian Renaissance?  I don't even know!  I always think fluffy sleeves = Italian Renaissance (how's that for some scholarly costume research, eh?), but I really have no clue.

Other funny things:  This dress is not Velvet.  Rowena Ravenclaw lived in the 12th Century, and I KNOW this isn't 12th century.  So I'm doing a totally inaccurate version of a costume that was totally inaccurate in the movie.  Lawlz.
