Embroidery Costume

Hello reader,

sorry I haven’t uploaded a post recently I have been crafting non-stop!

Here is one of the many things I have made over the last month and a bit.

It is an embroidered costume. It is based on the sort of outfits I could imagine one of Henry the 8ths wives would have worn.


The beige part of the dress is made from cotton, the ‘tummy bit’ is made from red velvet. The arms and the inserts in the skirt are burgundy cotton and the gold  is this sort of stretchy-man-made fabric.


I was wondering whether to add some embroidered patterns to the burgundy panels in the skirt and also whether to make a kind of ruff round the neck. Or possibly some beadwork on the dress. What do you think, please leave some suggestions in the comments!


See you again soon,

Bea 🙂
