A number of tomb effigies from the 14th and 15th centuries show women with
elaborately pleated and ruffled veils, which might be created by some type of
embroidery. If you can get a copy of the Visual History of Costume the 14th
and 15th Centuries, there are a lot of photographs that show this kind of
work. The book is long out of print, though.
