I love what you did, but there's something I'm confused with here. Typically when I spiral lace my kirtle, I tie a slip knot and tuck it down the bodice front. But you have a bow at the top. I'm sure even I'd draw that without thinking, since spiral lacing isn't as common as criss-cross lacing today.

I was using a reference picture. It was very hard for me to find any images of dresses that laced at the front. Thanks for the input. I have never worn anything similar, so I will keep that in mind in future.

Well, spiral lacing is accurate for medieval lacing. Front for non-nobles, back for the rich (servants to help out). I'm a SCAdian who does14th century fun, and any fitted garb uses this lacing. Your drawing looks almost like an Italian kirtle. Reenactors love taking photos of garb, so you may find plenty of people around here who may let you reference them if you ask. It'll probably feel like fan art, hehe. Look up Kirtles and you'll most likely find front-lace gowns in the photos. Working class will have short-sleeved and laced fronts, long-sleeved with buttons down the front and sleeves, and nobles will have shiny buttons. Lots of bling.
