Coif..... (plus no make-up)

A coif is a hair covering worn by women and men of every rank during the tudor times, A coifs purpose was for protection, warmth and keeping the hair away from the face. For noble women, it was worn underneath headdresses and hoods.
I had some spare fabric and time so i decided to attempt to make one myself, and here is the finishing piece.......... bearing no make-up.... run screaming for the hills.

Nearly there!!

Hoorah!!!... thats the whole dress finally complete and finished, the last thing to do on my dress was the puffy under sleeves. I've been taking my time over the last few months as I've also had work, commissions plus jolly ol' Christmas too. so this dress has been sitting in a box for about 4 months, which is why it looks so creased in the pictures, surprised i still managed to get into it, all thats left now is the french hood.... anyhow here they are :
