So my daughter is having a History Day at school & her year is Tudors. I know this dress is not really accurate but, i am a beginner, i have NEVER made something like this before & my daughter loves it.

It's made from 1 large red curtain (given to me), a large gold silk like table cloth (charity shop) and then some gold trimmings & gems, anyway here you go.

It gets the point across well enough and that's the point right? I remember doing a presentation on greek mythology swathed in white bedsheets, so I'd say this is a step up.  Grin

Plus, it looks like your daughter is really enjoying the dress you made for it which makes this a total success.

That's wonderful!  She is SOOOOOO cute!  You did a great job, and repurposing the curtain and tablecloth was genius!

Great job, she looks fantastic.  I'm sure she will have lots of fun wearing it at school.
