Tudor robe for the actress

Gudrun Landgrebe
 
Vorn
 

This costume has been designed for the actress Gudrun Landgreve. She asked for a mystic, décolleté dress.

For this creation we used hand-made silk, a so-called cutwork. The strictly geometric-patterned fabric – distinctive of this time – is underlaid with plain-colored silk. The silk shimmers through the transparent parts and provides the dress with a depth effect that would not have been possible with single-tiered fabrics. The edge of the hem and the rounded lap area are woven into the material.


The stiffened bodice is furnished with a U-shaped, laced neckline and is closed at the back with a hidden lacing. The high Medici collar was crafted using a wire frame and Venetian lace.
The glamorous sleeves are reminiscent of the Renaissance. They are ornamented with 'gems' in a cross pattern and are equipped with cuffs of antique lace.


The undergarment consists of a Tudor corset and a 'Vertugade en tambour', i.e. a barrel-shaped hoop petticoat.
This kind of dress was usually worn in combination with long pearl necklaces.
