Currently I'm working on creating a Gable Hood pattern and mock-up as one of my Millinery II assignments. Whew...hard work. I did lots of research online prior to commencing the pattern, but still it's a bit of struggle to get it just right. I'm making a pattern to look like the gable hood below worn by Jane Seymour.
I love all of the ornate beading at the front - makes me want to actually make one! Unfortunately, the assignment is just create the pattern and mock-up.
Koshka-the-Kat: One costumer who can be counted on to have a great reproduction and lots of pictures construction details about it. A great source of inspiration. Katherine's reproduction is based off of the pattern in 'The Tudor Tailor'
Online: I love the reproduction made by this woman, who was kind enough to provide detailed research, pattern, and instructions for constructing a gable hood.
Book: 'The Tudor Tailor' by Ninya Mikhaila (love her work) and Jane Malcolm-Davies
Provides pattern, illustrations, and instructions for creating a gable hood...along with other beautiful garments of the 16th century.
Reproduction from the pattern by Katherine of Koshka-the-Kat: One costumer who can be counted on to have a great reproduction and lots of pictures construction details about it. A great source of inspiration.
Note - both of these patterns would need to be tweaked to fit the wearer.
Oh, I miss costuming classes, especially when they involve millinery. Le sigh. This is a really neat project, I can't wait to see your final mock-up.ReplyDelete
Why is it that in the middle of all my other sewing projects, your post makes me ITCH to make a gable hood? Great inspiration. :)ReplyDelete
