My outfit choice for the Manuscript Challenge! Details of the challenge can be found here: http://indemejarecristi.wordpress.com/2014/08/14/i-challenge-you/.
A few months ago I made hoods for friends that were invested as Baron and Baroness of their local SCA group. Hoods are one of my favorite go-to accessories to make an outfit complete -- and warm, too!
I made 2 black linen hoods, one with a long liripipe, one without. The baronial arms are a felt applique livery badge.
I am in desperate need of a silk headband - or filet - or circlet - or whichever word you fancy.
My plan was to follow the pattern outlined in Textiles and Clothing: 1150-1450 for item number 142 (Crowfoot, Pritchard, and Staniland, pg. 132). This example was found with a piece of fake hair attached.
