Announcing The Tudor Tailor West Coast Tour!

Hey, West Coast peeps! Have you ever wanted to take a class from the masters of Tudor costuming, The Tudor Tailor? Have you always been sad that you live so frustratingly far away from the UK in order to attend such a class? Well, fret no more, because Dr. Jane Malcom-Davies & Ninya Mikhaila are coming to the U.S. West Coast this summer to teach the wonders of historically accurate 16th-century costume construction!


Ninya supervises as students learn how to stamp, slash, pink, prick, and generally abuse fabric in the name of fabulousness.


  • Costume College – Woodland Hills, California
    • Thursday 30 July to Sunday 2 August
    • Information and bookings:
    • (Please note: Limited classes are full at this time)

“Off With Their Heads!” Ninya and Jane will be teaching a class at Costume College on constructing and wearing various Tudor style headdresses.


Jane lifts her skirts in the name of education! Ooh la la!

About the author

Sarah Lorraine


Sarah discovered her dual passion for history and costume right around the age of twelve. Dragged kicking and screaming to her first Renaissance Faire at Black Point, she was convinced she was going to hate it, but to her surprise, she fell head over heels in love with the world of reenactment and dress up immediately. Her undergraduate degree is in Clothing & Textile Design, and she has a Master's in Art History and Visual Culture. When she’s not hauling crap to SCA events and ren faires, Sarah enjoys reading true crime books, writing fiction, and sewing historical clothing from the Middle Ages through the 20th-century. One of these days, she might even start updating her old costuming blog again.
