3590Re: [SCA-Milliners] Veil
- Jun 5, 2007It looks a lot like the head covering in the painting
by Maerten Heemskerck shown in the Web Gallery of Art
listed as Anna Codde, 1520. The "tails" of this one
don't twist, but that may just be an artists license.
Heemskerck has another painting called Family Portrait
from 1530 that shows a simular head covering as well.
All of them appear to be made of lightweight sheer
material I took to be fine linen or possibly even silk
for the more well to do. I haven't made any of these
yet but it really doesn't look that difficult, and the
long tails would give the option of wrapping and tying
them around the head for the look of the other lady
don't you think?
