Friends of ours were married in September 2007 and they had a Renaissance themed ceremony. All of the clothes FH and I had were too heavy for the heat so I put together a few things. Here is my "head gear" while I'm in Ren-mode.
This is a breid, which was worn as a head covering by married women in Scotland during the 18th century.The stitching is blackwork that I did in blue. The edges are were all sewn closed by hand.
Here's a shot of the reverse side so the fiber folks can see the back.
FH and I tend to go as Scots for Ren activities since he favors kilts in warm weather. It suits his family surname and both sides of the family tree.
His great kilt is currently 9 yards of double wide (60") wool flannel. We are planning on trimming it down by a few yards as it's much longer than it truly needs to be. This suits me fine as then I will have a warm shawl for winter.
Working together we can pleat the fabric, roll him into it, and buckle his belt in about five minutes. The only pictures of him in the great kilt were taken with a film camera, so I don't have pictures handy. I will remedy this the next time he puts it on.
