Sewing pattern for a Henrician or early Tudor lady's French-style kirtle and foresleeves in various styles. Ideal for Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Princess Elizabeth and other ladies 1530-1560. With full instructions for choosing materials and constructing garments - perfect for reenactors.

Previously sold as part of a three-part pattern pack (Henrician lady's gown, kirtles and petticoats), we have now separated out the elements, enabling customers to pick and choose which items they require. We still offer the gown, as well as the petticoat in their own patterns. Now printed on a sturdy, yet lightweight paper, postage costs have been reduced from the previous bulky pack.Now printed on a sturdy yet lightweight paper, postage costs have been reduced from the previous bulky pack.

Highly researched and based on documentary descriptions, extant examples and paintings. See the image of the pattern envelope for specific sources.

In addition to the gown and petticoat pattern that go along with this pattern, we offer paste buckram for stiffening the kirtle bodies. This is the layer that many of the jewels would be added to. We have pearls and 'ouches' or jewels for decorating necklines and sleeves. In addition, we offer a custom made set of neckline jewels based on a portrait of Anne Boleyn.

This pattern is available in either larger sizes or smaller sizes. Please see the size chart included in the photos for this listing to ensure you're selecting the correct pattern for you.

We also have a children's version of this pattern, ideal for a young Princess Elizabeth.

Note, photos of actual garments are examples only – no garments are included with this product.
