The Tudor Tailor team aims to provide research, resources and inspiration for people who enjoy learning about 16th century dress - for fun, for educational projects, for reenactment events, for heritage sites, for stage plays or for screen productions. Please visit the Research page (coming soon) to discover more about our ongoing work, the Shop to buy books and resources for making costume and the Talks & Events page to see our range of presentations. The Tudor Tailor team is headed by Ninya Mikhaila and Jane Malcolm-Davies (see 'About us' for more information). Join our Facebook community to send us your comments, questions or suggestions.
