Making A Renaissance Gamurra by Hand, Part III: Sartorial Police, Sewing Tips and Sizing Issues!

My two-week Renaissance gown project has become a six month project; I apply my latest research and learnings, based on extant clothing, portraiture, and documentary evidence such as wills and inventories, not to mention 23 years of experience making this type of clothing.
