American Girl Tudor by duchessobservia American Girl Tudor by duchessobservia
I made this in the fall of 2002 for an independent study art class. I was a senior in high school then. I'm rather fond of this dress. The Tudor period is one of my most favourite fashion eras, and so I made a doll dress based on fashionable clothing from about 1530. Everything is sewn completely by hand, since I didn't know how to use a sewing machine then. I made the pattern myself based on a sloper in The Dolls' Dressmaker by Venus A. Dodge, and I bought the fabric (with the exception of the plain black cotton lining and the white cotton for the chemise) in New York.

The chemise is trimmed with black featherstitching around the neckline and wrists, since black embroidery was popular on chemises at this time. The overskirt has a fairly long train, which I'm not quite sure you can see in this picture. The outfit also included crimson satin undersleeves and a French hood, but I don't know where exactly they are at the moment.

My model is an 18 inch American Girl doll.

Beautiful work- she looks just like that Holbein sketch of a court lady (All she needs is a gable hood!)
