Our scholar is really coming together! We've covered the pants, shirt, and ruff. Now for the coif and hat.
For being such a simple and small part of the costume, the head covering always seems to complete an authentic look in a way that the most accurate gown or outfit could never achieve on it's own.
For this part of the process I found ridiculously easy and FREE patterns online to follow.
Find the hat here.
Find the coif here.
The hat is made out of wool (or you can use something of similar thickness and stretch) and the coif is cotton. The lining on mine was made of a creamy colored silk, but you can use what is available as long as it is light weight.
Now here is a truly classical looking bust!
At this point I was getting pretty excited to see the whole costume come together!
Twins each with half a brain in reality; the other half displayed here!
