Third Time Lucky


 Henry finally got his son by his third wife, Jane Seymour. But unlucky for her, she died soon after... Or perhaps she WAS lucky, as he hadn’t yet tired of her. I chose to develop some ideas that came to mind when looking at her sleeves. I used plain, and shrink textured velvet, gold thread and various embellishments. Some of the design work for this has also been used in a Tudor inspired winter coat I made for my City and Guilds: Fashion course.
