The Tudor Tailor : Reconstructing Sixteenth-Century Dress Paperback
Computer-generated, historically accurate patterns enable you to make a wide range of garments, such as doublets, hose, bodices, skirts, hats and headdresses - even underwear.
There are also plenty of ideas for decoration and embellishment such as ruffs, cuffs, collars, embroidery and other surface decoration.
The full range of Tudor society is represented, including lower- and middle-class clothing as well as the more sumptuous costumes from the courts of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I.
There are also patterns for childrenswear and maternity wear, plus information on how to store and look after your finished clothing.
In addition to the patterns, there are detailed drawings of each costume and information about historical context, including original paintings and source material.
