Beautiful book, shipped quickly. Gave me a real insight into the type of clothes and fabrics used for children's clothing in Tudor times, and the patterns that I used (basic shirt, doublet and breeches) were very good. Construction instructions on each pattern are quite concise so not recommended for a beginner, although there are some additional guidelines and you don't need to do tricky things like zips! Excellent for a sewist with some experience who wants to bring some authenticity to a costume.

This is a *fascinating* book on Tudor clothing for children. Pages 70 - 71 are worth the (reasonable) price of this book, as they contain clear photographs and instructions on how to swaddle a baby. What enthralled me is that the swaddled baby fell asleep. Does swaddling mimic the sense of safe enclosure found in the womb? I don't know -- but it is entertaining to see an ancient practice safely demonstrated. Buy this book, as it's already a collector's item! 10/10!

Fantastic service as always, and great to deal with such nice people. I received a quick reply to my my message, the book was sent out right away, and it arrived next day. The Tudor Child is absolutely full of informative text, detailed instructions, patterns, line art for reference, and lots of full colour photos. Another goldmine of information for Tudor costume creations! Thanks again 😊

This book is excellent. Great scholarship, beautifully researched patterns, and really good instructions. I'm so glad there's a piece on the adaptation of dress for pregnancy too. As for the practical side, the book arrived really quickly, was well packed for the post, and makes a lovely addition to my library alongside The Tudor Tailor. It's a very nice high quality book, and should stand up well to use as a reference book. Plus there was a free postcard, which makes a great bookmark!
