This lively look inside the clothes presses of ordinary and middle-class people in 16th century England charts wool’s journey from sheep to wardrobe. Discover what evidence there is for their clothes, where their garments came from, and how they were made and maintained. This dressing demonstration compares and contrasts everyday wear with Sunday best and explains other clothing conventions of Tudor society. It also discusses some of the challenges of recreating historic dress for 21st century wear.

If you would like to host a Tudor Tailor event, please contact Jane (visit “contact us” for details) to discuss prices and practicalities. We are based in the UK but happy to travel the world!
“Jane and Ninya come prepared to entertain and educate. Their background in Tudor clothing and society is extensive and we have enjoyed their presentations and workshops sessions. I could not give these two ladies a higher recommendation. Easy to work with, prepared and yet flexible to the changes each venue may have. When I do a fund raiser I want it to be something I enjoy. I enjoy history, historic fashion and successful events. Both times we have hosted their event it has been a rousing success. Everyone was pleased and I look forward to their next book release and trip west!”

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.
