We are delighted to bring you our new-look website. Since we launched the original site back in 2005, our range of books, products and services has expanded and developed beyond recognition and we feel that an update is overdue! The shop is now linked to Etsy which offers a user-friendly platform showing prices in customers’ home currencies and enabling us to charge accurate postage to all destinations. The site is still under construction and will be further developed over the next few weeks so do keep checking in for updates. Happy shopping!
Seasons greetings to all our colleagues and customers! Thanks to everyone who has collaborated with us, supported our research, come to one of our events or bought from us this year. We wish you every success with your costume projects in 2015.
A successful foray into television has prompted an update to one of The Tudor Tailor’s best-loved patterns. Eager headdress researchers are already excited to see the information in a practical format. Ninya’s recent work with the BBC was an opportunity to put theory to the test and it passed with flying colours. The “gable hood” is now a “Tudor lady’s bonnet, frontlet, paste and edge” reflecting research published in The Queen’s Servants in 2011.
The Tudor Tailor’s visit to Chicago is now only five weeks away and the deadline to book a place and be eligible for the participants’ 25 per cent discount on patterns and books is fast approaching. There are places available for the events on Fri 24 (evening) and Sun 26 October (day).
