Which hat on ebay?
So far all I'm finding nbsp;<WBR>at the ArmStreet "store" on ebay is
the 6-gore fur hat on the whippet-thin woman, and the muffin hat on the sara
I've seen the back of a "traditional" kokoshnik (in a "Peasant Art in
Russia" book), so I'd be interested to see this headdress you're looking at.
I am talking about the back of the muffin-like eBay hat.
It is not muffin-like on the back..or it shouldn't be. I now looked again,
and I think it's off a bit. The burgundy kokoshnik on my website is modeled on
one of the Peasant Art hats, but that picture is the front. I know what the
back looks like, and mine did look like that when flat...it's making it
actually have the right shape when assembled that was the problem.

- If this is the one you are talking about it is just a fancy muffin cap.
You could make this with a straight band for around the head and a
circle pleated into it for the back "poof". Probably the band is 4-5
nches wide and 22 inches long to fit around your head, and the poof
part is about 24inch diameter circle.
I have no idea if it is accurate or not. Haven't studied these, but it
is an interesting idea for a hat.
The one on the really thin woman wearing the tight coat is what I call a
6 piece hat. 4 or 6 equal pieces that are curved triangular shape sewn
together to make a rounded top cap with fur on the edge. Very easy.
Hardly need a pattern for that, though I have seen them in the ordinary
catalogs in the accessories section.
- Frankly, it looks my chefs caps. Not even as
distinguished as a muffin cap. I have also not seen
this in period, it is fun, but I wouldn't enter it in
a contest without good sources and/or reasonable

- Hi, my name is Baroness HL Isabeau Quiquandon (Terri Hirling,
Houston, TX), pardon the interruption to your regular scheduled
I've been lurking for sometime now hoping to located Lady Liudmila
Vladimirova doch'. Is she a member of this list? If so, I'd
appreciated it greatly if she'd contact me off list regarding her
paper entitled "Russian Women's Headwear and Accessories from IXth
through XVIIth Centuries" and her kokoshnik "how to" (which I fell in
love with by the way) both on the web. It seems the picture links in
the article are broken and I'd like to know if any of them are
accessable elsewhere. I'm a costuming apprentice and am having a
difficult time locating "Russian" period artwork from the 15th and
16th centuries for garb research and, in particular, headdresses (I'm
real big on period hats). Eastern European garb is somewhat foreign
to me as my main focus is Western Europe (English & Italian, just
starting Flemish & German).
Thank you very much for your time.
