Progress on the Tudor Costume

A few images of work I've been doing on the Tudor costume for the Much Hadham Forge Museum this week:

Cutting the kirtle panels - red silk dupion for the bodice, and gold jacquard for the skirt forepart.

Kirtle bodice mounting panels, with bone channels
Front panel of the kirtle skirt

The roll, finished - used to give the skirt volume at the waist
