Jane Seymour's Petticoat

  Other part of the outfit is a red petticoat made of silk dupion, lined with linen and stiffened with other layer of canvas, which helps to create a necessary volume of the skirt, because in the 30th of 16th century the Spanish farthingale (esp. verdugado) hadnít have been worn yet in England. The petticoat is laced in the front with a finger looped silk braid with hand made brass points.
