Swedish frilled veil Part III

Read part I and part II.
Finally I finished the sewing portion of this project. I last blogged about it last april, and I'm so ashamed I have let it sit in a drawer for all these months. The veil is presented in these photo's on the wrong shape of hairdo, so please don't pay too much attention to that. I did find it funny though to see it arranged this way.
The veil still needs starching, and finishing touches. I will wait with that until I have the second veil I will make Maria is finished as well. This one has to be based on a northern German example. So now I am finding myself in the middle of two stacks of books. If anyone of you it familiar with frilled veils from this region, you're always welcome to share the info's you have here in the comment section. It will be greatly appreciated!
I will show some of the examples I tracked down on the blog next week.

Embroidered baby coif

I couldn't resist making an embroidered coif for my 8 months old daughter :-). It's a woolen coif, with a single row of interlacing stitches embroidered in linen. The embroidery is inspired by
Birgitta's cap, studied by Isis. I'm not quite sure whether children actually wore embroidered woolen coifs like this, but it was fun to make.
