I'm a Roman and generic Norse kind of girl, and can't even do them neatly. I am, however, struck with some kind of illness and have a feverish desire to try and make a modified version of the above linked dress for my daughter. She's only 2 so I won't need to tailor to curves :) Does anyone know of any portraits of this kind and how to make the head dress? I take it the under dress is linen and the outer wear is wool?
I hope I'm brave enough to follow through with this!!
