Elizabethan/early 17th century coif cap tutorial

A great page with a variety of patterns for late period coifs.

This coif is a reproduction of the Renaissance coifs worn in England in the 16th century and shown on many pictures from that time (eg. Holbein). The pattern is very simple and more historical than my old coif. It fits without problems and any other things than the ribbon.

Mary fell in love with the "long lad" They married at Holyrood Palace on 29 July 1565, even though both were Catholic and a dispensation for the marriage of first cousins had not been obtained However, Mary's insistence on the marriage seems to have been passion rather than calculation.& love

Walter Devereaux, first husband of Lettice Knollys. Father of Robert Devereaux. Walter Devereaux dies in 1576. Sir Robert Dudley, the queen's favourite, and probably lover, starts an affair with Lettice, Walter's widow. Robert Devereaux, their son, goes on to be called one of Elizabeth's favourites. One of a group of very much younger men with which Elizabeth I surrounds herself to flatter and "admire" her. Lettice and Robert were married in 1578, two years after the death of Walter.
