The Tudor Wardrobe - Ninya Mikhaila & Jane Malcolm-Davies

Join The Tudor Tailor for a lively look inside the clothes presses of ordinary and middle class people in sixteenth-century England. Discover what evidence there is for their clothes, where their garments came from, and how they were made and maintained. This dressing demonstration compares and contrasts everyday wear with Sunday best and explains other clothing conventions of Tudor society. It also discusses some of the challenges of recreating historic dress for 21st century wear. This discussion and demonstration will be led by England's foremost scholars of Elizabethan and Tudor dress formerly in charge of creating the reenactment clothing at Hampton Court Palace.
