As a personal project I decided to make a set of historical underwear from the 16th/17th centuries. Using patterns from The Tudor Tailor by Ninya Mikhaila and Jane Malcolm-Davies, I made a smock, two sets of bodies, and a bum roll. The bodies are reproductions of the extant Dorothea Bodies, dated 1598, and the pair worn by Elizabeth Vernon in her portrait, dated 1595. I have since made them for clients. I am selling these items on my Etsy shop BelphoebeDesigns. 2018 – 2021.
