025 Italian Lady's Gamurra


The gamurra was the basic Italian woman’s dress from 1490-1530. It can be used for all classes, depending on ornamentation and the garments layered over it.

The bodice of the gamurra has the option for a low or high neckline, and  front or back/side-lacing.  

The front of the gamurra bodice is stiffened to give support and a smooth line. Instructions are given both for pad stitching by hand, and a similar effect using machine stitching.

The skirt is full, knife pleated, and is gored for more fullness at the hem. It has a faced slit below the bodice opening.

The sleeves are detachable two-piece sleeves, open at the elbow and back seams, with tie variations.

Sizes 2- 30 are included in every package.

The instruction manual includes historical notes, extensive fitting and sewing instructions, and design tips.

This pattern is printed on bond paper.
