Subject: King Henry jacket - Not a costume! Date: 7/23/12 11:07 AM

I have been watching reruns of Showtime's series 'The Tudors' on BBC America. The costumes are just fascinating. I'd love to know how many people it took to make all the clothing!
I've been admiring some of King Henry's jackets - both for the cut and decor and decided I would add that to my list of items to make for fall. I want it to be unusual and splashy, but not costume-y.
Here are some photos, although I couldn't find the one that is my true inspiration.
When picking up patterns for a client on Saturday, I just glanced through the Simplicity jacket section (they were on sale)_ and look what I found!!!:
S2341, View D
It even has that little sleeve cap thingy.

I'm thinking about a black jacket decorated with black & silver brocade and cording.

Your photo #4 was the inspiration photo a skater brought to me for his program to music from The Tudors. I had so much fun working on that outfit. Of course some of the details had to be altered to allow it to be used for athletic purposes.

I love the costuming from that era -- I have all 4 seasons of The Tudors on DVD and will often put them in to watch while I'm working for additional inspiration.

I think your Simplicity pattern is a really good place to start.

Can't wait to see your finished project.
