Foreskirt Trim Tudor Costume

In this photo you can see part of the motif of the fabric in the foreskirt. It is similar in scale and design to the type popular in this period. I always like to add trim at the bottom of the foreskirts I make. There are two reasons for this it adds extra weight and it gives a finished look. This trim is really made up of five rows of trim. Three of the off-white and two of the off-white and gold. You can see one full off-white row between the rows of pink beads, the other two have the off-white and gold over the top center of them. To add color and richness I added the beads. The red ones are glass faceted and the pink are glass drops.
