13th December 1577
Sir Francis Drake took five ships and 164 men on a voyage from Plymouth, with the intention of seizing Spanish bullion and exploring South America.
This was not his first visit to South America; He had been there in an expedition four years previously. This voyage was well supported by senior members of Queen Elizabeth I’s court, such as Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, Sir Christopher Hatton and Sir Francis Walsingham
This was the voyage on which Francis Drake circumnavigated the world, returning in 1580.

I get a lot of questions on here about my Renaissance gown. I thought I’d share the top 3 dresses I used as inspiration when designing my dress!
✨1. Juliet’s red dress from the 2013 R&J adaption: Juliet is probably my favorite fictional character so my first thought when I decided I wanted to do a Renaissance dress was red. I first looked at Juliet’s dress from Zaffereli’s film, but fell in love with the costume designs from Carlo Poggioli. I wanted to do similar puff shoulders and the style of sleeves.
✨2. Queen Elizabeth from Reign: I took the gold accents I loved on this one and used the idea of adding trim around the cuts where you can see the gold fabric lining the inside of the arms. ✨3. Katherine Howard from Tudors: I love everything about this one. I’m crazy about the sparkles. (I’m constantly adding beads and I don’t think I’ll stop.) I kept the same neckline and took ideas from her “bling”. If I could add the stomacher I would, but to keep with the time period of Mary Tudor I was unable to do that. I’m hoping my neckline looks as good as hers by next year.

Finished #2 last night. I'm calling the series The Royals. I like these sittings where the models own their place and their space and challenge the viewer's gaze with their own self-assurance, unapologetic presence and power. (It's amazingly difficult to find these depictions of women in our own media when you start to look).... I'm reading the Wolf Hall series at the moment and in my imagination these are characters in the Tudor court. It may be a bit oblique in reference for formal titles but in my mind the confident and corporeal #1 I've nicknamed 'Henry' and #2 is my superhuman and poised 'Anne'. I've got a Cromwell on deck as well. There is no direct reference in the works, but I'm enjoying their backstories as I pass them in the kitchen😅
