Make the perfect lady's gown for the Northern Renaissance period!
This gown and kirtle makes a great look for the 1550s "Mid-Tudor" period of Edward VI and "Bloody" Mary I. Based on pictorial references. Supportive kirtle, overgown, and high-neck partlet included.
See RH602 for the farthingale, petticote, and smock you'll need to make this a complete "from the skin out" ensemble.
Fits busts 30½"-48" and waists 23"-41". All sizes in one envelope.
Or order a Made to Measure pattern in your personal measurements.
