I am very excited for the new year. I have been gathering the fabric for three new costums I plan on selling. I will keep updating my blog as they grow closer to being completed.
I find myself looking to the portrats of the wives of Henry VIII to find clothing styles that are time period correct. I am working on three of the styles, one will be similar to the style of Catherine of Aragon, another will resemble the stlyes of Anne Boleyn, and the last I will attempt for the look of Jane Seymour. The stlyes are all very alike yet have some rather distinct varyations. I am looking forward to the English Hood that Jane and Catherine wore. Though they are different in style the basic form of the two is simliar. Anne wore a French Hood that was quite different. I have a picture of one below.
The styles will be so much fun to create and I look forwards to seeing them completed.
