Click on the video to the right on the page above. There is a LOT wrong with the way they are dressing her but it does give a basic idea of how to dress your typical Elizabethan.
Now, none of these things would detract from it being a very awesome faire gown or from being a pretty gown to wear to the SCA but this is not what Queen Elizabeth I would have really been wearing. It is, except for the synthetic part and the farthingale being way too short, how the average upper class Elizabethan would have dressed though. And I do love that they put that bit in there about how the pair of bodies are nothing like the Victorian corsets. Woohoo!
