Here is the Houppelade I made for more maternity garb. I have since given it to others to be worn as their maternity garb. Yay for big tent-like dresses and babies!
For those of you who know me, you’ll know the real reason I made this dress was for the awesome hat.
The hennin is actually made from a small basket I covered with fabric. I got the idea from Cynthia Virtue’s website here. My husband was a patient champion the day he accompanied me to Old Time Pottery and watched me try baskets on my head to see which one would fit and gave advice as to which one looked the best.
The instructions for the veil are in the Medieval Tailor’s Assistant.
