Description
Curious about the cut and construction of Elizabethan polychrome and blackworked embroidered linen garments? How were the nightcaps assembled? Were all the coifs pointy? Did the jackets have cuffs and collars? Come learn some of the shape variations seen in extant pieces, how they were sewn together, and worn. We'll also look at what were likely later alterations not to be recreated in your pieces.
