Even in headdresses, the Renaissance was much more individualistic than the Middle Ages had been. Many radically different styles of headdresses were fashionable during the Tudor period in France, England, Flanders and the Netherlands. In general, the more elaborate headdresses were smaller and cut closer the head than previous fashions. The simpler ones were more tailored than the many different varieties of veils favored in earlier fashion trends. Snoods were worn without veils, and many different versions of hoods were seen. Some styles were seen almost exclusively in one area or country, while others were more widespread.
Period Patterns #52, Tudor Era Headdresses, contains patterns for 17 different headdresses.
These headdresses span the time period of C. 1490 to 1580 A.D.
This pattern should be used with MP-041 Women's Italian Renaissance Gowns, MP-046 Woman's German Puff-and-Slash Gowns, MP-051 Early Tudor Woman's gowns and MP-056 Late Tudor and Elizabethan Gowns.
These early Tudor men's garment patterns were designed for real authenticity. Each pattern includes historical notes for background, and variation enhancements for the finished costume. Sewing instructions and suggestions for fabric choices and notions are included.
The instructions for Period Patterns assume you are an experienced seamstress with expertise in fitting garments, so they do not explain fitting techniques. They do NOT give explicit or detailed instructions and are NOT for beginners. If you are an experienced seamstress with good sewing skills you will be fine.
