1530 Tudor Gown Green

Period Correct Clothing to Fit Your Style… 

  • Tudor Gown of cotton brocade and faux fur
  • Forepart and Undersleeves of cotton mattelasse
  • Cotton twill lining
  • Machine sewn inner seams
  • Hand finished (hems, edging, and overcasting on eyelets)
  • Cotton was used for comfort and washability- this gets worn when it is much hotter than old England
  • This project was the first Tudor Gown I made with patterns drafted from the Tudor Tailor and modified as needed for fit, support, and comfort
  • 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…
