Dear List and Carllein (who first asked this)
I just checked my copy of "Queen Elizabeth's Closet, Unlockd". On p.205
there is figure 298 and 298A. This is a black and white photo of a cap: The
"A white linen drawn work coif, with additional embroidery in black silk
and gold thread with spangles. A ribbon would have been passed through the
worked loops at the bottom of the coif to pull it in beneath the hair. Royal
Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh"
I tried to scan and send this to Carllein, but for some reason my scanner
won't cooperate (odd). The worked loops are very pale -- probably to match
the linen. They looked to be simple buttonholed or overcast.
Just FYI everyone.
