King Henry VIII

Drew Schau as King Henry VIII

(10 months old)

I am thrilled to be blessed with our first grandchild.  When I asked my daughter (who is a history teacher) what she would like me to make, she told me something historical.  She then suggested King Henry VIII!  I started off with a thermal style onesie to which I added some ribbons and trims which were sewn together to form a breastpiece.  I also added pleated gold trim around  the neck and arms.  The vest was a bit more challenging. I  made the pattern from a ready-made vest.  I used a brocade and lined it with fleece.  I put in a casing and drawstring, which helped keep the vest on and also created the appearance of a peplum.  The sleeves were made by using ribbon which I bound and enhanced with jewels.  The vest is trimmed with fake fur.  The “necklace” is made of drapery trim and I sewed jewels to the openings.  The beret-style hat is made of fleece and trimmed with more jewels and feathers.  I used clear elastic as a neck strap.  Since my grandchild resides in Seattle and I live in Cincinnati, sizing was the most challenging factor.  You can imagine my delight in seeing the photos of King Henry VIII.
