• Made exclusively by The Tudor Tailor

Sewing pattern for late Elizabethan lady's French farthingale (nowadays also called a French hoop or drum or wheel farthingale) of the style worn by noble ladies from 1580-1620. Perfect for Queen Elizabeth I and other late 16th and early 17th century upper-class impressions. Also includes patterns for a roll (also referred to as a 'bum roll') in two sizes to either be worn alone or under the farthingale to create the appropriate silhouette for each decade of the era. With full instructions for choosing materials, sizing and constructing garments - perfect for reenactors.

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

Please note, these farthingales are designed to be worn and fitted over separate bodies (corsets or stays). They are also intended to be worn under the Elizabethan lady's gown pattern. Patterns for these garments are not included with the farthingale pattern but are available to be purchased separately. 

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.

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