New project: Swedish frilled veil

Maria, Älgå, 2nd half of the 14th century
Soon I'll be starting on a new project: a custom order for a Swedish frilled veil for Maria from Albrechts Bösser.
The statue above will serve as example for the reconstrcution. The veil looks like it has a fretworked honeycomb frill consisting of only two layers. Mostly this type has at least three layers (however I'm nearly sure I've seen a two-layered version before, but I don't remember where).
First thing to do is order the right type of linnen.
In the mean time I'm translating my Ba-paper on frilled veils into English in order to get it published.

Hello Isis,

Has your research thesis been translated into English, yet? I would love to read it. Will it be available for purchase?

Thank you,
Cristiana de Huntington
