Wow, that's good to know! Are there any instructions that come with the pattern in the Tudor Tailor? That's what I'm a bit worried about since I haven't had the chance to look at my friend's book yet.

Do you know anything about Margo Anderson's patterns? I was considering her pair of bodies pattern too, but it's more expensive than the Reconstructing History one (which of course I don't mind if the instructions are any better).

The Margo Anderson patterns are A+++ and well worth the price. Not only do they come with the patterns (which are amazingly easy to use), they also come with like over one hundred pages worth of instructions / documentation that's in depth and easy to follow. I have their Loose Gown pattern, and my friend has a couple of the other Elizabethan pattern. They are well worth the money.

The Tudor Tailor...kind of has instructions? It really isn't a pattern pattern so much as its the basic shape drawn out on grids - so its very general. It mentions somewhere in the book what the scale of the patterns is, but I can't for the life of me recall what it is off the top of my head.

Thanks for the input! I'll definitely go with the Margo Anderson pattern then.

Hello,

My time period of choice is Elizabethan England, 1550's to the 1580's, they had boned jirtles that also had petticoats as well as boned Petticoats the terms were always in flux, it has made researching said topics confusing in the extreme. So if you want to use a boned kirtle/petticoat combination, there should not be anything wrong with it.

Also please check out these article regarding Pairs of Bodies: http://www.extremecostuming.com/articles/elizabethancorsetptii.html
And this one as well.

I do hope this helps you out!
