Thank you to Stéphane Casali for his beautiful portraits from the Hodson event. The rest of the gallery can be seen here.
I have one class left in this semester and the Tudor Tailor book launch (I can’t wait to see our hard work in print!) on Friday. I promise I will start keeping up with my blog! I still have to tell you all about the Titanic II London Launch, I’ve been terrible I’m so sorry everyone!
The Tudor Tailor photo shoot is officially a wrap!
Head over to the TT Facebook for a few other photos from the shoot!
I can’t put into words the feeling of seeing all our hard work finally come together. Looking back I have to say that all of those late nights spent with tea, period films, and thimbles at the ready were worth it. (Thank you to Colin Firth for getting us through the last night!)
… I just noticed how low my jumper is in the first picture and I assure you I had a dress on under my jumper!
My self-directed project was to re-create the Ruff worn by Baby John Dunch’s nurse Elizabeth Field from 1586-1588.
8 yards of fabric later here is my humble creation.
There are a few things I wish I had done better in the photo BUT considering these were taken while packing the costumes up to take to the Tower, I’m pleased with them. I wish I had a high collar so I could have properly tucked the ruff in and gotten the full plate effect but c’est la vie! We had a schedule to keep!
“Intern Lyze gets up close and personal with one of the Tudor Tailor’s favourite sources of costume information. Photographing the effigy of Mattathia St Paul who died aged nearly 2, depicted on her parent’s monument of 1613 in St. Lawrence’s Church, Snarford, Lincolnshire”
;D See! I’m not dead!
Fear not followers, I’m not dead! I am currently interning with The Tudor Tailor. Between working on all the super top secret items for the upcoming book and raiding a particularly beautiful costume library, I’ve been a little too busy to keep up with my blog!
I promise that once life gets back to a semblance of normality I will keep up with my normal schedule (That is until June when I start my summer internship with Colonial Williamsburg and I’m pretty sure that will happily take up most of my time!).
