Description

This article from the Western Mail in 1934 recognises a Tudor influence on current fashions and describes some of the Tudor styles being adopted by leading dress-makers. In particular, it suggests that ‘princesse’ cuts were common for skirts, and that medieval puffs were being introduced into sleeves. The article goes on to describe the ‘modernised Tudor style’ of a wedding dress worn by Miss Barbara Hutchinson at her marriage to Mr Victor Rothschild. The dress was made of ivory velvet and had medieval sleeves, a triple row of quilted pads to resemble buttons and a short ‘en princesse’ train. Additionally, Miss Hutchinson wore a pearl coronet in the Tudor style. The ‘Tudor period’ refers to the period 1485-1603 in England, and spans the reign of five Tudor monarchs: Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I.
