Just for You! A Fashion Show

 We at the Gunpowder Plot Tailor Shop have convinced some of our elegant patrons to take time from their busy day at court to show some of our best designs. Remember our motto: 

"We Sell No Cabbage" 

Cabbage in the 17th Century meant scraps or rags. 

Woodcut 1568
We make fine farthingales and jerkins as well as clothing for both men and women. We do not however do linen smocks, shirts,ruffs or other neckwear but we can provide the name of a very good seamstress. No women are employed in the shop. We will gladly pick your old gown to pieces or measure you anew on notched parchment but for a fair price we will measure you up and construct a very durable toile (fabric model) which can be sent to the specialist of your choice at home or abroad.
Flame Step right up and enter the show!
