Dispatches from a small business in

United Kingdom

By Jane Malcolm-Davies and Ninya Mikhaila

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.

The first four chapters provide a social history of clothes in the 16th century, drawing on the latest research and primary sources such as ordinary people's wills and surviving royal records. There is discussion of the materials used, people's financial and social relationships with their clothes, and the changes in dress from birth to death. There is also general advice on choosing materials, construction methods, and an insight into the Tudor tailor's sewing kit.

Featuring:

- 160 pages
- 80 historical illustrations, many in colour
- Over 100 specially commissioned line drawings
- 36 patterns with full step-by-step instructions and photographs showing finished garments worn by real people.

The delivery was extremely fast. Despite Brexit, the parcel arrived Germany within one week. I can definitely recommend The Tudor Tailor! The book contains useful tips for different designs and combinations both for men and women. The patterns are easy to understand. Depending on your social status, size and corpulency they can quickly be modified . I especially like the photos that were taken of different models. They bring the costumes to life and help me to visualize the final designs. A great book!!
