This costume was loosely based on the protrait of Elizabeth Buxton c1590 at Norwich museum and made for JMD&Co at Hampton Court Palace as part of the events in 2003 to commemorate the death of Elizabeth I in 1603. The gown is made in blue silk damask worn over a petticoat of rose coloured silk taffeta.The stomacher and revers were embroidered using a freehand machine technique. They were then further embellished with spangles. Both both hand and machine embroidery was used in this project.
