Emeline la Chauciere – Tudor Ensemble

Name: Emeline la Chauciere

My current research project involves the creation of my first Tudor ensemble, an endeavor that combines historical processes with meticulous craftsmanship. The ensemble includes several key components: a chemise adorned with blackwork details, a hand-sewn green linen kirtle, tie-on sleeves, a wool and linen over partlet, and a coif. Additionally, I am in the process of adding an apron and a hat to complete the look. I drafted the kirtle pattern myself and employed traditional techniques such as pad-stitching the bodice to create channels for light boning, ensuring both historical authenticity and structural integrity. The skirt was cartridge pleated onto the bodice, a technique that adds both volume and elegance.

The photos presented here capture the ensemble in its near-final stages, with final alterations and hemming still to be completed. Creating this ensemble has been an immensely enjoyable and educational experience, allowing me to immerse myself in the garb-making practices of the Tudor period. The project was inspired by a recent trip to London, where I had the opportunity to explore the rich history and fashion of the era. I also then returned to the States to autocrat an Elizabethan-themed event in honor of Shakespeare’s folio. Creating this ensemble, helped to really bring all of these events to a more meaningful conclusion.
