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.

Hey Isis. I'll have a look. I'm pretty certain I have a pic or two. And why not a Danish veil?

hi peter!
thank you for looking :)
maria prefers a northern german one. i'm not sure why though. i know several nice danish examples.

Danish is always good ;0). It looks great Isis and fun to see it put on the cones. It reminds me of a 15th century portrait - can´t remember the artist.

It's beautiful! Good luck with the finishing touches!

I know exactly why she prefers a northerns German one... Looking for one at this moment.

There! Have a look at my blog...
There were a couple that I wasn't quite sure about - how do I define "frilled"? :-S

And they are not from very far north, but they are still north of the middle. I hope they are good enough...
