The Tudor Tailor: Reconstructing Sixteenth-Century Dress

Pavilion Books, 30 mars 2006 - 160 sidor

A valuable sourcebook for costume designers, dressmakers and those involved in historical reenactments, this book contains all the information you need to create authentic clothes from the Tudor period.

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 is also 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.

I've been waiting a long time to get my hands on this book. The patterns within are very well researched and the pictures are as inspirational as can be. I cannot wait to get started on my first Tudor gown using this book as one of my master references. Läs hela recensionen
