I made some pantaloons from a pair of jeans and added blue velvet slits like you would find on Henry's style breeches, with raw edges on the reverse appliqu. I also added fabric into the cuffs to make them more ruffled looking. For the shoulder cloak I also used Henry as inspiration for the large shoulder style and used the stiff pocket area for it but ripped the denim in a rough way for a contrast. For the top and collar I used Elizabeth's elaborate dresses as inspiration. I used more blue velvet cut outs and folded fabric to create a bodice type effect with the triangular silhouette, with the rough edges at the bottom. I also made a large ruffled collar from denim in the style of Elizabeth.
