Finished Elizabethan Hood with Bongrace Up - Side View

Finished hood. The bongrace is folded up and held in place with two pearl headed pins.


That's gorgeous, Jane. A question about the veil, or bongrace thingy at the back. It is stitched together at the lower edge?


Yes, it's stitched around all the outside edges so that you end up with a big pouch, with a circle opening at the top. This circle is then sewn to the back of the frame of the hood. Does that make sense?


Aah - yep makes sense. It's a sleeve with the cuff closed up!
