The Tudor effect!

by Sunita on June 24, 2009

Sorry, no foodie post today. Just a little something I wanted to share.

This term, Rengoni’s class has been studying about Tudors. Today, all their research and various other activities are going to culminate with a visit to Kentwell Hall. Everyone needed to dress up in tudor costumes ( everyday ones, not posh). This is what I managed to produce after a day of slogging ( yesterday)…-

There is usually a cup attached to a cupstring and hung in a similar manner to the purse…Rengoni has the cup in her class and will add it later.

The li’l lady is ready to go…

Have a great day !

I am sure Rengoni is going to have fun there.
I woudn’t able to make this if shyama ask me to make somethinglike this.
I will have to ask my MIL help them.
Rengoni looks more and more like you.

THanks…Rengoni had a great time. You’re lucky to have your MIL to turn for assistance… in my case, it’s me all the way!

Sunita Hats off to ya! If u managed this in a day & doing such a perfect job, you should start taking orders:-) The coif & the string of the bodice just looks so original, & i guess would be the difficult ones to do. She looks a darling! You made a purse too!! I am bookmarking this, going to be my inspiration for this years:-)


10 Sunita June 25, 2009 at 5:46 am

As I said earlier, Soma, I had to finish it in one day. Rengoni was very worried she wouldn’t have costume to wear in the morning. Take orders?? Nahhh!!!

Yes, the coif is a bit tricky indeed !

You are so talented, Sunita!! Amazing that you were able to pull that off in1 day! She looks so sweet in that costume, too. :)


12 Sunita June 25, 2009 at 5:47 am

Thanks Kalai…Rengoni had a fabulous day :-)

Thanks Lorraine :-)

You know in Hindi they would say only one thing for this – “Nazar Utharo koi”. She needs it — such a cutie

Thanks Lakshmi…with kids around, one does find a way, I suppose :-)


19 Ivy June 24, 2009 at 6:05 pm

Sunita, you are multi-talented. Regoni must be very happy with the result. She looks beautiful in the costume.


20 Sunita June 25, 2009 at 5:49 am

Thanks Ivy…Rengoni was quite pleased indeed :-)


21 Sri June 24, 2009 at 11:15 pm

Hi Sunita! I’m a subscriber to your blog’s feed and have been a regular though I’ve never commented. Just wondering now, what happens to kids whose parents don’t know how to sew? :)
This post gave me a panic as I was imagining being confronted with a situation where my child has to do something like this. I have absolutely no sewing or handicraft skills!


22 Sunita June 25, 2009 at 5:50 am

Sri, well, you can always buy or hire it :-)


23 Priya June 25, 2009 at 12:50 am

That looks perfect Sunita! and you did that in a day ?! thats really amazing. Rengoni looks soo adorable in the costume. The attire reminds me of the women I met in the Amish country here.


24 Sunita June 25, 2009 at 5:51 am

As I said Priya, one day was all I had left…Rengoni did have a great time indeed :-)


25 RedChillies June 25, 2009 at 3:15 am

The Lil lady looks very cute and excited. Ahem! i had to refresh my history and learn a bit about Tudor.


26 Sunita June 25, 2009 at 5:52 am

:-D Thanks RC


27 Sharmila June 25, 2009 at 10:54 am

The word Tudor got me here .. and am glad I did. The colour combi makes the dress perfect .
You have a great blog. :-)


28 Sunita June 25, 2009 at 11:06 am
