I've gotten stalled on my costuming projects (again!) and it's near the end of the month, so I figured I'd do another collection of quick tutorial projects. All of these are headwear, from a number of different periods.
- Medieval. From Maniacal Medievalist comes a tutorial on making a simple, unpadded coif/arming cap.
- 1200s. From Cité d'Antan comes a tutorial on how to make a touret, one of those "piecrust" type women's headpieces. The tutorial is in French, but Google Translate and the pictures should make it usable for a non-French speaker.
- Late 1400s. I've shown patterns for late medieval wrapped caps before, but this one on Imgur gives good illustrations of how to put on and secure such a cap as well as directions for making one. The cap pattern itself was designed by the costumer who writes sevenstarwheel. This pattern is different from the winged cap pattern I featured in a previous tutorial post.
- Late 1400s/early 1500s. From Tece's Trials and Tribulations comes a number of tutorials for a number of wool German Renaissance hats: a slashed hat; a simple squarish-crowned hat; a "schlappe" hat; and a floppy, broad-brimmed hat, among others.
- 1600s. How to make a man's "Cavalier" style hat from a purchased un-formed hat blank. The tutorial can be found here.
- Early 1800s. Here's a good tutorial on how to make a Braided Regency Hairpiece, from Katherine's blog, The Fashionable Past.
