HSF 2015 - Challenge #9 - Brown

What the item is: tudor/elizabeathan coif

The Challenge: #9 Brown

Fabric: Printed cotton

Pattern: Tudor Tailor pattern for coif 1, Patterns of fashion for coif 2

Year: 16th century

Notions: Ribbon, wire (yes really)

How historically accurate is it? the shape and order of construction is historical. some of the materials aren't BUT these are just a first attempt and a stopgap. I hope to make some in linen in the future.

Hours to complete: 1 could have been less. Surprisingly quick to do.

First worn: Today to test out fit and see how forehead cloth worked with it.

Total cost: Practically nothing as all from my stash. (used a fat quarter for both coifs)
