    • Amatorum

    •  
    • From Sacrae Caesareae. A heavy skirted German gown. The bodice is shaped like the Elizabethan bodice but not held rigidly
    • Henri IV

    •  
    • During the Elizabethan period men's dress becomes shorter and reveals the full leg. This stiff and padded doublet has a modest peascod shape. Pearls and jewels are embroidered in an allover pattern on the doublet and hose. This is an excellent...
    • Young Englishman

    •  
    • The short pumpkin hose are reduced to small padded rolls at the hips. This is a good view of the peascod doublet with typical decorative buttons at the front. A short cape hangs from the shoulder. As this pose indicates, Elizabethan men are...
    • French wheel and bolster

    •  
    • The French wheel or cartwheel is attached at the hip and looks like a shelf with sharp edges. A pleated ruffle of the dress fabric often extends to the hoop edge. Eventually the bolster, a very large padded roll, replaces the French hoop in England.
    • Isabella of Valois

    •  
    • By the mid-sixteenth century the funnel shaped farthingale is firmly established in Spain as the basis of baroque court dress. Its shape is emphasized by strong lines of braid at the center front, shoulder wings, pointed waistline, and hem. This...

    • Mary Ann Walham

    •  
    • A beautifully embroidered partlet fills in the square neckline. The headdress consists of long, rectangular fabric which is placed lengthwise over the top of the head and falls down the back. The top part is stiffened and sewn or pinned to a coif...
    • Cholmondeley Sisters, The

    •  
    • Shaped like fans, these open double ruffs isolate the faces in a sea of lace. The line of the open ruff is repeated in the hair, which is filled out in a heart shape at the sides
    • Queen Marguerite as a girl

    •  
    • The open, square neckline appears throughout the sixteenth century. Sometimes in place of ruffs there are horizontally draped necklaces and pendant earrings
    • Iron corset

    •  
    • In the late fifteenth century fitted underbodies are made of heavy material. Hinged iron corsets replace the underbodies early in the sixteenth century. By mid-century some corsets are boned in patterns which follow the lines of the dress seam. To...
    • Tailor, The

    •  
    • From Sacrae Caesareae. Apparently still without its boring set in, a funnel-shaped farthingale hangs in the upper right-hand corner of this shop
    • Engraving detail

    •  
    • A variation of the hoops, this sausage like bolster is tied around the hips just below the waist. It changes the form of the skirt from a cone to a cylinder
