Gahhhhhh - lost a link
- Greetings all,
At one time, I had a link for a site with medieval head wrapping -
taking a rectangle of linen and manipulating it and voila, you look
like you stepped from at wheatfield in the Duc de Berry's Heures.
Can't find it now! Anyone have any ideas??
- I don't remeber a website for this, but it sounds like the standard
gothic turban. It's easy to do.
You need a piece of cloth 18 to 24 inches wide and 7 to 10 feet long.
Center it over your forehead or the back of your head. Pull it
together around your head so it covers your head sort of like a
kercheif. Twist the loose ends together into a kind of rope. Wrap
the "rope" part around your head, nore or less at the bottom edge of
the "kercheif" and when you run out of "rope" tuck the end under the
1. when you the "rope" arrives back at the beginning, pull it under
the starting point and snug it up for more security. continue wrapping
and finsih as before.
2. instead of wrapping all the way to the end and tucking the end in,
tuck it in or under sooner and leave a few decorative inches hanging
down or sticking up. this is more usually done when the veil has
embroidery or fringe on the end.
There are other arrangements that can be done with a squarer veil that
involve more pins and less wrapping, and I don't know how to do them.
