To top off (ha ha) my new Italian Renaissance costume, I needed headwear. I looked at a few different options:
- I could use the Reta I already made – it fits well and is correct for the outfit I’m making.
- I can go without any headwear at all – many of the portraits show women without headwear.
- I could finish off the netted headdress I started, which is about half done, with the most challenging parts done.. but it’s rather unimpressive….
- I could try something new and totally different…. which would require drafting a new pattern and starting from scratch…
.. so of COURSE with 2 weeks to go before the event, and NONE of the garments completed yet, I opted to go for the fourth option.
