Plain Jane with a new look


I have been researching hats this week. Many thanks to Got Medieval for sending me some wonderful pics of people wearing those crazy twisty hats. I had been drawing them all wrong.

I have also decided that the wrong hat can really add years. One of the regular contributers over at Tudor History questioned how Jane Seymour would have looked if she lost the boxy Gable Hood (left). I think Jane's new French Hood is much more attractive (right). Ahhh the wonders of photoshop!

For a second I really thought Jane was Katherine Howard-isn't that Katherine's Howards dress from her potrait-gosh I'm a nerd.

All I did was switch their hats. But it is amazing how much Jane now looks like Catherine just because she has her hat.

Now I see why political candidates spend a fortune on clothes!!

The french hood does look so much better which is probably why Anne Boleyn looks so fetching in hers! I could never understand why Jane wore the gabled hood. The only reason I could come up with was because she was trying to seperate herself from the more fashion forward Anne.

...except Jane had blonde hair. But wow, what an improvement!
