Here are some relevant images which are influenced the process

I hope these images help to illustrate the design and conception processes for this project.
They will probably rotate and change as I get closer to construction.

This image came from Sarah's Elizabethan Lady web site. It illustrates the back "V" very well.

The use of a large repeating pattern is important here, also the partlet.

Agnolo Bronzino Portrait de la Duchesse Eleonore, I am enchanted with this partlet! I definately want this element.
