What a beautiful work of art. Details details. The grommet cinching and back panel is a great idea for making it adjustable to many sizes.

Yes, I have made an arc-like crown piece that will have a little veil on it. I'm sort of burnt out and sort of stalling... I also got LOTS of great ideas from Elizabethean Costuming for the Years 1550-1580 by Janet Winter and Carolyn Savoy. They really adhere to the authenticity in making their pieces and give historical reasons for the clothing detail of the divergent classes. It was handed to me from the "committee" so I don't know where to get it but it would be worth finding if you can.

This is an astounding piece of work. I looked at all of your views and I can't get over how stunning it is. I'm an amateur history buff and reading Tudor history just now so your review caught my eye. Really special dress - very authentic looking. Do you need to create headgear to go with it?

Sorry about all the weird notations. Looks like my Mac's apostrophes translated into something very strange.
