The Tudor Child
The opening section provides a social history of children and babies in the sixteenth century, drawing on the latest research and primary sources such as ordinary people’s wills and household accounts. The book contains fascinating insights into the way in which Tudor children were raised, educated and of course clothed.
The book is lavishly illustrated in full colour offering a visual feast of paintings and sculpture, beautiful line drawings, and high-quality photographs of reconstructed costumes. More than 40 patterns with instructions are included for making garments for all ages and social standings: from infants to children aged 12 years, including underwear, dresses, jerkins,headwear, and knitted items
