LOOK. IT’S AN INFOGRAPHIC FOR RUFFS. This coming from the fantastic French blog La costume historique—at least, I think they’re fantastic? I’m mostly looking at the pictures.
There’s also one that matches ruffs with collars, which is great.
Wish they ventured into the 17th century, but. Still. What a time to be alive.

Is it a rule that every ‘eighties’ decade is just NUTS??

yes.  yes it is.

attn.:  I’m selling this lovely cap because the style is a bit too late for me (I prefer early 1770s, and this is a bit too big) but my loss is your gain!

off white/cream silk organdy, entirely hand sewn in period correct manner, fits all size of heads w/ adjustable drawstring, one layer all around.  dress it up with a colorful ribbon and a bow or two over your pompadour for some high late-revolutionary war style!  ask if you have questions.

$35 + s/h

BUY THIS B/C I WANT MONEY FOR FABRIC AND THINGS??

friendlings + followers, I am still alive, acclimating to college and waiting for my sewing supplies to ship.  I’m also taking a theatre costume class and there is a final project that’s supposed to expand our usual repertoire…. I’m thinking either super modern dress with all sorts of nice accents, a super fitted 1940s suit, a riding habit, an edwardian dress, an edwardian bicycling outfit, some sort of outrageous millinery project…
