Tudor pattern

It's a very well-written pattern for an authentic Tudor gown. Everything is explained in simple easy-to-follow steps. The 3-colored petticoat is a brilliant idea that makes the outfit even more fun.


3-in-1 Tudor Ensemble

This is a great and versatile pattern. The dress is well fitting with a beautiful slim bodice. I used eyelets and lacing for the back closing. I have to say, those little eyelets are so much easier to apply than snaps, and give the long, narrow bodice shape you are looking for. While there are some beautiful Tudor gowns available, I think this was the easiest. Instructions were excellent. My favorite part of the pattern was the Kirtle / Petticoat. The way it's made allows you to have three different petticoats for three different looks. I used a black velvet for the dress and three different satin or brocade petticoat fabrics. And one of the petticoat fabrics matched the sleeve lining. The Farthingale will be used with all of my Tudor patterns. This pattern gives great instructions for fabric choice and has a great way to make this conical shape. All pattern versions fit both my fluffy PM's and my new, slim AG's.


Tudor Ensemble

Easy to follow detailed instructions that give you a beautiful finished outfit. I used satin on my sleeves to match one of the panels of the petticoat. Already have a second dress started. Loe the finished look.

Tudor pattern

This is an elegant and beautiful pattern. Each piece has well-written instructions; nothing is overly difficult or complicated, so you get this amazing dress with authentic details without a lot of fuss. I have been intimidated by some of the other period dresses that are very detailed; this one was more practical and "doable" for me. I love that the underskirt has 3 panels to change up the look. I used a lush velvet to line the sleeves Instead of fake fur and it turned out great. It was fun to pick out the various decorative trims to put the icing on the cake. I highly recommend this pattern.
