1510 Tudor Gown Grey

Period Correct Clothing to Fit Your Style… 

  • Tudor Gown of cotton jacquard and faux fur
  • Cotton twill lining
  • Petticoat of shot silk
  • Machine sewn inner seams
  • Hand finished (hems, edging, and eyelets)
  • Cotton was used for comfort and washability- this gets worn when it is much hotter than old England
  • Minimal boning in open channels so it can be removed for machine washing
  • This project was a less formal Tudor Gown I made with patterns drafted by combining the Tudor Tailor underkirtle and my body block
  • This is one project for my A&S 50 Challenge, 50 things from my stash, since all the fabrics aside from the fur were already in my stash…
  • 2017 Update- I added fur trim all around (tacked on for washing) and made a fur lined wool partlet which I LOVE- so soft and snuggly!
