This package provides the patterns you need to complete the wardrobes begun with either the Elizabethan Lady’s or Gentleman’s patterns. Here you will find the elegant ruffs and distinctive hats and headpieces of the period, for both men and women. The package included eight hats. It also includes neck and wrist ruffs, a standing ruff, partlet, two purses, a fan, and a lady’s needlebook.
The 85-page manual contains a wealth of valuable millinery techniques, detailed instructions, and illustrations. Based on the best research sources currently available, this includes some of the pieces that have, until now, been difficult to get right, such as the attifet, French hood, standing ruff and supportasse. The manual is completed by the usual layout diagrams, appendices, and bibliography.
