Elizabeth I Flowy Dolman Tee
This T-shirt features a design of mine based on the coronation portrait by an unknown artist of Elizabeth I. The design features a hand drawn banner along with with her signature and her coat of arms.
Notes from Tiffini: I find this top to have a great fit. Very feminine in how it is draped with the flowing sleeves going to a more tapered bottom and waist. This top is easy to dress up or down. The fabric is soft, light and not clingy - perfect in the summer. I can see some people might want to wear a cami underneath if they find the shirt is too thin or they find the arm holes swoop too low with a potential for a "reveal" while raising your arm. I am of a slim/average build and find the sleeves and fabric perfect without the need to wear anything underneath.

What to say of all this Tudor business? A real live Shakespearean Soap Opera if there ever was one. And there were. As with so many of the subjects I end up building my pieces around, my interest in the Tudor history began with books. Oftentimes I listen to audiobooks while I work on the pieces themselves, finding inspiration to create something completely original or re-imagining centuries old pieces. As with so many great stories of dynasties, the stories about the Tudors are oftentimes most interesting when they are most personal.
All of the individuals in this enormous and oftentimes confounding family tree had and led such interesting lives (some of them dramatically shortened), that I have enjoyed paying a kind of tribute to their stories.
