A Tudor Costume

12813 ratings | 468537 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!

Absolutely stunning gown. Every detail would be far beyond the average working person, no wonder the royals were so revered if they could dress like that!

I really don’t know what to say; I’m just speechless to learn that you made that entire costume yourself! Calling you “talented” is a woeful understatement. If you’re not working on a TV show or in movies, you definitely should be. Your gift ought to be seen by everyone. The Tudor costume is AMAZING! And, you got all of those fiddly pieces on without anyone helping you, so extra brownie points for that. I would have needed two maids!

Great dress made using the colours and French hood style of the 1540's (later Henrician Court 4 years AFTER Anne Boleyn was executed. During Anne's lifetime French hoods had a longer and more simple shape and were always black. It wasn't until the 1540's and royals such as Elizabeth and Catherine Howard took style advice from the development in French style that colour was introduced to hoods so they could match other accessories. During Anne's lifetime the hoods were black and heavily jeweled to set off the jewels, display wealth and also so that they would match any outfit. Look at the Brandon marriage portrait to see an accurate colouring for that period. Even Anne Boleyn made her own French hoods so it had to be something she could wear a lot of the time and with any outfit as they took a long time to make! Therefore, the brilliant talented lady resembles Catherine Howard or Princess Elizabeth in the 1540's, NOT Anne Boleyn in the 1530's...because the style and colouring of the French hood is 1540's and not 1530s....great costume though. For further accuracy you need to add the front panel that did up with pins. The overdress was designed like a coat with a front fastening lace and a stiff panel that covered the front fastening lace and was done up by pins. It was to this that the false sleeves were tied. To see that in action look at the most famous portrait of Jane Seymour where that detail can be clearly seen! Oh and don't forget your essential pommander to ward off evil smells and promote good hygiene (illness and disease were carried by bad smells in the air according to the Tudors so your trusty pommander was their equivalent of a strong dose of vitamin c today). But you are very talented and what you have made is incredible! I am just a stickler for accurate authenticity when it comes to reproduced Tudor clothing

Also, my comment is aimed at the people who keep telling this talented young lady that she looks like Anne Boleyn, not at her herself, because what she has made is amazingly good and she is clearly a very very very talented young lady! Very impressive work! Just, please YouTube commenters make the right comparison, not cite Anne Boleyn because she is the biggest name we know today. This wonderful style demonstrated was made famous by Elizabeth I in her portrait for her father so let's please credit her with that :)

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.

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!!!

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.
