Harlie des Roches of the Silver Linings Sewing Studio is welcoming the Tudor Tailor team to Chicago. Ninya and Jane are giving a presentation and hosting an evening reception on Friday 24 October, followed by two days of workshops on practical aspects of reconstructing sixteenth century dress such as sourcing materials, pattern piecing and surface decoration. The evening keynote, Court life and country lore(, draws on The Tudor Tailor’s latest research published in The Tudor Child and features Lady Mary Talbot seeking advice from a wet-nurse.

The presentation includes a dressing demonstration with a court lady who is “heavy with child”. There will be wine and hors d’ouevres, and The Tudor Tailor shop to browse. Event participants will also be able to pre-order other items from The Tudor Tailor online shop with a 25 per cent discount and no postage and packing charge. Items will be shipped ahead for collection during the workshops.

What The Tudor Tailor did next

The Tudor Tailor doesn’t know which way to turn. Jane and Ninya need readers’ and customers’ help to decide which project to publish in the coming year. There has been a great deal of ongoing research since The Tudor Child was born in March 2013 and all of it is producing exciting, ground-breaking information. Most of it is coming together around two main themes and this puts The Tudor Tailor in a quandary.
