    Tangl told me that she did a woman's and child's Elizabethan dresses that recieved Masterpiece ratings at Artemisian Kingdom A & S several years ago. She told me that "corduroy" in period would have been silk or wool as opposed to cotton and is effectivly cut velvet. It would have been cut wide so the wide-wale would be closer to what they had in period. She thinks that the Documentation for this is Janet Arnold's "Elizabeth's Wardrobe Unlock'd". She may have it and will look for it and give you the details at a later date. She got the source from Mistress Laurellen.
She is unsure about the bead question.
