I know I'll get some helpful pointers here Very Happy

male or female, posh, middling or lower class? What level of accuracy are you aiming for?

Female Artisan class as I would be helping out in the dye / felt area if I did it. Very Happy

its well worth getting a copy of the Tudor Tailor if you plan to do more than one-use fancy dress type costuming, its cot drawings of styles by decade as well as patterns for all the basic garments in it Very Happy
