New Elizabethan Collar

My new Elizabethan collar arrived yesterday. The first one I ordered was too small, but this on is OK, would prefer another 1/2 inch, but this one will do. No picture, but you can see them on the Renaissance Tailor website. Mine is the plain linen variety.

I think I am going to have to make another outfit to go with the collar/ruff. I've got a good variety of middleclass Elizabethan outfits now that the coats are done. So I think something with a collar, say a doublet dress, would look really good with the ruff. I just got 4.8m of teal wool from eBay, hopefully this will be suitable.
