The talk about farthingales earlier in the thread reminded me of a book I read when I was in my late teens/early 20’s, Mills and Boon/Harlequin type book.

The heroine spent several long, and tedious, passages describing her heavy crinoloine hoops and multiple petticoats. And then danced the waltz with her beau “thigh to thigh”….Surprised

That’s because the rogue was holding her much closer than decorum dictated. Laugh

Loved the costumes in the Tudors, I know un married ladies had their hair loose and uncovered, just as in the Victorian period married or older women would put their hair up but young girls kept it down, covering the hair was a modesty thing yes and it’s only in recent years where the head is uncovered even in the 60s and 70s in my church going days older ladies always wore hats . I quite like the peasant clothes of the Tudor era, I work at a Tudor mansion house and sometimes there are re enacatments and the servant’s clothes look comfortable, a coif on the head, white shift with an over dress and bodice. I love the French hoods, the gable hoods well a bit of a Renaisance period fashion disaster.

They wore so many garments from top to bottom but nice never the less. They all had their unique style. Un- married women or Queens on state occasions were the only ones allowed to wear their hair loose and unbound. A gable is a roof so that is were they probably got the idea from to begin with but the French hood was entirely different and that got its appearance from the crescent moon!

It makes me laugh to see the changing fashions from history. Most people consider that people back then had no sence of fashion etc, but really just as we are today, they were always looking around and trying out new looks and ideas. Like today as well fashions tend to go around in circles.
Makes me laugh when you see the kids wearing what they believe are the latest fashions, until you point out to them that what they are wearing you wore back in the 70’s etc. Even shoes do the rounds. Wedge heels were all the rage last year round here, DUH I was wearing shoes like that in the 80’s.
The kids look at you with amazement when you tell them that LOL. Personally I don’t bother with clothes that are fashionable I just put on whatever is comfortable. If a person judges you on what you wear then that person is very shallow, and not worth knowing. A book should never be judged by it’s cover (Except books by S.W.M.N.B.N)

I’ve been reading her Wars of the Roses series, and quite enjoying the books. Don’t shoot me, Bo! :D

Ok I’ll let you off with a quick slap of the wrist Steve. However I will confess I did enjoy the Red and White Queen books. I simply couldn’t get on with the Kingmaker’s Daughter, however.

Yeah, I found The Red Queen surprisingly interesting, chief. Though, strangely, I still found it rather hard to like Margaret (despite all her trials).
