The Tudor Lady’s Gown in the 1500s and 1510s
Nothing exists in a vacuum and this is certainly true of the clothing of English noblewomen in the first years of the 16th century. The ensemble we call the Early Tudor Lady’s Gown as exemplified in portraits of Katherine of Aragon is the natural development of the gown and kirtle outfits of the 14th century.
