Jane Seymour's Kirtle

  There is a kirtle under the dress made of a silver silk dupion, decorated with white silk satin and lined with linen. The kirtle consists of a bodice stiffened with sea-grass cords and decorated with a real pearls and gilded filigree beads around the neck, and the trained skirt. The bodice is laced on the sides with finger looped silk braids with a hand made brass point. The skirt is more stiffened in the front to hold better the shape.
