Spanish Noblewoman Help?

(1/3) > >>

Hi there! I managed to rope my best friend into being involved in my local faire. She would like to be a Spanish noblewoman, to celebrate her heritage, and and I had promised to help her with her costume. However, I'm having a heck of a time finding resources and patterns! I'm thinking of a high-necked dress with hanging sleeves and a skirt that is cut to be conical with panels instead of full with gathering, all over a farthingale and chemise. But beyond that I'm stumped.

Do you have have any ideas for dress-in-progress blogs I can check out, historical references, or patterns? I would really appreciate it!

Merlin the Elder:
Doña Catalina! You're on!

Lady Renee Buchanan:
Merlin, great minds think alike!  As I was reading songbird's post, my first thought was Dona Catalina!  Songbird, she always looks gorgeous.

Gauwyn of Bracknell:
I sent her a message (Dona)

Lady Kathleen of Olmsted:
Yes, Dona Catalina.

Also Google 16th century Spanish Fashions and click on Images. Plenty to choose from.
