Or more accurately a “pair of bodies”. Made using a hand-drafted pattern based on instructions found as elizabethancostume.net. It is very densely boned, particularly on the front panel and also features a central wooden busk and boned hip tabs. A boned farthingale and a fabric stuffed bumroll will eventually sit on top.
It is the first piece in a full Elizabethan costume; this year’s project, a follow on from last year’s Victorian project. You can follow it all here http://makesmemine.blogspot.com/p/elizabethan-costume-project.html.
Coutil, cotton drill, cotton twill, stainless steel bones, a wooden busk, metal eyelets and satin ribbon.
