A Tudor Costume

12111 ratings | 436652 views
A little different for my channel, but I hope it is enjoyable nonetheless! This video shows the layers, and the process of getting into the layers, of Tudor dress. More information linked below! This was my first foray into tudor fashion. Because of this my ensemble definitely isn't the most historically accurate or well assembled but i'm quite proud of it. I learned a ton throughout the process, and definitely gained skills I can apply to similar projects in the future. This costume was made entirely by me, (aside from the shoes, socks, and rings) including the foundation garments. There are over fourteen homemade pieces worn for this project. Thousands of beads, over a hundred eyelets, and more than twenty yards of fabric went into this costume. Not to mention the hours of time! The whole thing took me four months of on and off work. Many more details on the process can be found HERE: https://doxiequeen1.wordpress.com/orange-tudor-ensemble/ If you are interested in seeing more of my work or contacting me, I'll leave links to my various sites below!

No wonder why our grandmas gasp at us. We pratically just wear "undergarments". On a lighter note, those days the husband really must have to sit through a long striptease.

If only I had the patience!!! I'm absolutely in love with fashion history and just want a wardrobe full of gowns from different decades! Maybe one day I'll find joy in sewing...

Pretty accurate. Minus the nail polish 😊😊 We still don't know how the dresses were constructed precisely however, since no example of a Tudor or Elizabethan dress has survived the ravages of time. Dresses were also cut up, given away to theater productions as hand-me- downs, destroyed and/or reconstructed. I have read that clothes were often burned after an individual died. This would probably explain why a majority of the clothing from the Tudor and Elizabethan period were never perserved. A few mens shirts, doublets, which is what we would call a jacket today, bits of fabric, shoes, ruff pins, hose, gloves and a few pieces of jewelry have survived, but not enough to really fully appreciate the creative fashions of the era. When Shakespeare in love was made, Sandy Powell, the costume designer, had to rely on paintings and historical books on Elizabethan fashion to accurately portray the clothes people wore during that time in history. Also, these clothes and accessories were for the wealthy, and highly coveted, so not everyone had access to them. Sumptuary laws also restricted who was allowed to wear luxury clothing. Queen Elizabeth I had over 1,000 dresses housed in the Tower of London. The fact that none of these dresses survived is a real shame. The BBC did a very interesting story about a beautifully embroidered tunic that was found in a church. Apparently it belonged to one of Elizabeth I's ladies in waiting. The queen gifted it to her. The tunic is gorgeous and textile historians were able to match it to a paiting of Elizabeth and are confident that the tunic was in fact hers. A 500+ year old clothing item worn by Elizabeth I, priceless. 16th century fashion was so beautiful and fascinating. My favorites are the French fashions of the 16th century. Really beautiful.

Just lovely. I am obsessed with this period - but I find the music disturbing, it's about 150 years too late. But the costumes are just wonderful.

I know exactly what painting this is from and it is one of my all time favorites, and my favorite of queen Elizabeth. I know this is super old now but I still adore this video!

Since there's no bustle or hoops, how do you keep the skirt out and away from your body? Do you just use very heavy fabric? The shoes are cute, but I don't think they're Tudor. OTOH I love the French hood. I wish they'd given one to Genevieve Bujold in "Anne of the Thousand Days," instead of just plopping a clumsy, decorated headband on her head.

Absolutely gorgeous! I'm in a historical theatrical ensemble cast. We recreate the court of Elizabeth I ... circa 1559/1560. You have the Henrican look down. Remove the dark nail polish and you'd be ready to join our guild! Texas happens to have a huge Henrican Faire (court of Henry VIII). They'd love you there!!!

Tudor style is a blessing for those with a smaller bust. My apologies in advance if that sounded inappropriate.

This is talent beyond compare. Not only did you make it all yourself, but you also dressed yourself. A Tudor lady would have had an army of ladies in waiting or servant girls to dress her. Kudos, I bow my head down in respect and admiration.

How did you style your hair? I can't quite tell, especially since it gets covered by the veil, but it looks lovely!

Nice video but absolutely wrong type of music. The dress is about 200 years older
Love it!!! 😍

It's a very beautiful dress. All the intricate pieces and detailing must have taken you quite a bit of time. I honestly wonder how much a costume like this would cost an individual. Probably a few hundred, I imagine, but it would be worth it.^_^
Fico imaginando eu tirando esse tanto de roupas, pra ir ao banheiro, depois de tomar umas cervejas... Kkkkkk

Back then having white and beautiful fair skin like yours was considered a must, and you having that natural beautiful white skin is a privilege. (Not trying to sound weird just putting it historically)

If you are designing a dress like this to wear for long day festival wear, opt for flat shoes. Heels like that on tricky terrain and walking or standing long periods are just asking for a busted ankle.

I love your costume. Tudor dress is fascinating. I have only one fault with the video. I didn't know how every piece worked or what some of them are. But other than that, brilliant.

Did you make your own pattern or purchase one? I’ve been looking all over for an Elizabethian pattern that fits what I’m looking for.. (Black Sails character /Lost colony play) the only one I’ve found was Simplicity pattern 8881 and I’m very wary of buying a vintage pattern off line from some random person

I know this is late....but where do you get your fabrics? I tried in the past to make period pieces because I loved them a lot and it cost an arm and a leg and they didn't really have the type of fabrics that were used in these eras.
