Product Description

c. 1558-1605 A.D.

Contains patterns for 7 doublets, 5 pairs of trunkhose, 1 Venetians, 1 slops, a falling collar and cuffs (sizes 34-54).  This pattern is complimented by MM043, MM053, MM090, MM092 and MM093.

The late Tutor period was a time of transition and uncertainty with 3 rulers in 11 years (not to mention Lady Jane Grey, who only ruled for 9 days), and the country endured violent switches from Protestant to Catholic and back to Protestant again.

During the early part of this period the men's styles changed faster than woman's fashions.  Gowns (MM053) declined in popularity, and a new emphasis was placed on the lower trunk.  Even with the peasecod belly doublet and trunk hose, men's styles could not compete with the sheer bulk of the women's gowns during Elizabeth's later reign.   Late in the period men wore neck ruffs and later the falling collar, sometimes together. They also wore wrist ruffs and cuffs (MM090 - sized for women).
