  • Any ideas as to a girl's TUDOR costume?



    Only just sorted the school bags and found a letter about "Tudor week"..... we've done "ancient greek week" and "victorian week"... oh and "evacuation/war shelters a la 1940's week".... sigh... nothing there I can recycle unfortunately so more expense.

    Any ideas? I can't even think what they wore!

        Yep.

        Long frock, sweetheart neckline, fluted sleeves, lots of decoration & pattern. Maybe an overskirt with a split up the front. A plaited headband with a veil coming off at the back. Lots of pearls.

        Basically a princess dress!

          I think I'll go raid the charity shop for velvet curtains! I couldn't think of head-dress... I was thinking of those long pointed hats but that's earlier isn't it.

              Yep. Pointy hats are medieval. Except they're not really, but y'know...

                Would a tudor peasant outfit be acceptable? There's a lot less embellishment, cheaper materials and a pattern for the clothes here!

                  Would this work with a different hat or are the sleeves wrong?

                    Oh I wish I'd paid attention in history... what era is this?

                      I can't see any pictures! I can help with the history though.

                        Sorry my pictures aren't working... odd...

                        It does say on the school letter plain fabrics so perhaps poorer clothes are what they had in mind but if her best (rich) friend turns up as a princess I don't think she'd be too impressed....

                          Yes... in my experience no-one wants to be the tudor peasant.

                          Honestly I wouldn't get too hung up about the correct era. Someone will be bound to turn up in a Disney princess outfit. And I doubt any boys will be wearing hose/tights and a codpiece.

                            I always feel sorry for the boy's mums although I have all that to come. I thought we'd got past dressing up days in middle school...

                            The pink dress with different headdress might work as a basic pattern here perhaps?

                            I do think though by the time I've bought the fabric and pattern I'd be better off battling it out with the rest of them on ebay....

                              why not ask on here if anyone has a spare bit of fabric? an old bridesmaid dress maybe? or try the charity shop?
