Finished photos of my Tudor corset! If you look closely at my corset, you’ll notice that I have a center back seam and two side seams. Each seam has a 1” seam allowance. This seam allowance isn’t historically accurate, however The extra seam allowance allows the corset to be let out if I gain weight. (Which might happen with the holidays coming up!) #greencorset #corset #stays #1500stays #boning #tabs #elizabethancostume #costuming #historicalcostuming #historicalfashion #elizabethan #fashion #historical #historicalgarment #historicalundergarments #historicalunderwear #underpinnings #theatercostume

** Proclamation of the accession of Queen Elizabeth I ⬇️ ** • •
ELIZABETH by the grace of God Queen of England, France, and Ireland, defender of the faith, etc. Because it hath pleased Almighty God by calling to his mercy out of this mortal life, to our great grief, our dearest sister of noble memory, Mary, late Queen of England, France, and Ireland (whose soul God have), to dispose and bestow upon us as the only right heir by blood and lawful succession the crown of the foresaid kingdoms of England, France, and Ireland, with all manner titles and rights thereunto in anywise appertaining:
We do publish and give knowledge by this our proclamation to all manner people being natural subjects of every the said kingdoms, that from the beginning of the 17th day of this month of November, at which time our said dearest sister departed from this mortal life, they be discharged of all bonds and duties of subjection towards our said sister, and be from the same time in nature and law bound only to us as to their only sovereign lady and Queen: wherewith we do by this our proclamation straightly charge and ally them to us, promising on our part no less love and care towards their preservation than hath been in any of our progenitors, and not doubting on their part but they will observe the duty which belongeth to natural, good, and true loving subjects.
And further we straightly charge and command all manner our said subjects of every degree, to keep themselves in our peace, and not to attempt upon any pretense the breach, alteration, or change of any order or usage presently established within this our realm; upon pain of our indignation and the perils and punishment which thereto in anywise may belong.”

Proclamations are issued on the death of one Monarch and the accession of another.
Since 1603, an accession council at St James’s Palace on the accession of a new Monarch. Under the terms of the Act of Settlement 1701, a new monarch succeeds automatically. The proclamation merely confirms by name the identity of the heir who has succeeded.

[NT] Hardwick Hall. Tapestries. (07). Aug 2019
.
Some of the magnificent tapestries on show at The National Trust's, Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire. 
Hardwick is internationally renowned for its collections, most notably its textiles, largely sourced and collected by Bess of Hardwick in the later years of the sixteenth century. Four years after Bess moved into Hardwick she compiled a list of all the objects in the house, giving a unique insight into the furnishings of an Elizabethan house.

By the mid-1590s when Hardwick was taking shape, Bess had already furnished her great house at Chatsworth but could only bring a small proportion of the contents with her when she moved back to Hardwick, so in the winter of 1592-3 Bess went on a shopping spree while in London. Amongst her purchases were the Gideon set of tapestries purchased from the estate of Sir Christopher Hatton for the huge sum of £326 15s 9d (from which £5 was deducted because Bess had to change the Hatton coat of arms to her own). From the same source Bess purchased a smaller set of tapestries that now hang in the Drawing Room and a set of tapestries that hang in the Green Velvet Bedroom. The set of tapestries in the High Great Chamber, telling the story of Ulysses, were also brought second hand but have been in the High Great Chamber since 1601.

When the newly ascended Queen Elizabeth gave her accession speech #onthisday in 1558, she was seated beside William Cecil, who was to be her 'Secretary of State' (the Spanish Ambassador Feria had guessed this would happen). • •
Formal announcements of her accession were to be sent to foreign courts, and three days of mourning for her half-sister the late Queen Mary were announced. • •
