Divorced, Beheaded, Died: Divorced, Beheaded, Survived. Yeah, we don't like those odds either.

You can still look as fabulous as one of Henry VIII's wives, and as an added bonus you'll be alive! Katherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, and Jane Seymour all wore variations of the Renaissance gown you'll make with this pattern.

The 1520s-1540s Tudor Lady's Gown in this pattern is based on pictorial references. Supportive kirtle and overgown are included, as well as two sleeve styles, two undersleeves, and trained or untrained skirts with or without front split. 

Fits busts 30½"-48" and waists 23"-41". All sizes in one envelope. 
Or order a Made to Measure pattern in your personal measurements.

Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.
