You'll need that band to pin the rest too, without it will wriggle up into a 'muffin head'look. The rest is basically a big oval of cloth. But, could you not use the basic rectangular headrail? Knot behind your head or pin into a more elagant arrangement, I didnt think the style was totally regimented, as long as it covers you up, but I admit it has been some years since i did Jorvic so kit guidelines may have changed somewhat

Honestly i would drop the band and replace it with a coppergate style cap.

Cut it as a rectangle twice as long as wide (and then sew the back edge, hemming the outside edges obviously) add two strips of tape and eh-la.

There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Nige, yep how right you are. Now we are here.................... we have seen Wilma from the Flintstones complete with hollywood style plastic viking hat with horns,
and a bloke who had leopard print leggings with fake fur pair of pants. Bare chest and the same plastic viking hat as before. They were not together!!!

My headdress problems just pale into insignificance

Just seen this - sorry.

Though I'd have said the same as Nige about costume accuracy and viking york rarely if ever being applicable to the same sentence!

Depending on what the rest of the kit is like (status and all that) it strikes me that the veil part may be too short. But if you're going to need it again inthe future, come see me at the market and will be able to tell much better in person!

Your kit was really not far off living history standard for a number of groups (never mind the general 'standard' in the trading area) so good on you.

If you do find yourself doing a lot in that period feel free to give me a shout for ideas (a hangerock/apron dress would fit in well with fur trading and wimple-less is less of an issue (though Thor Ewing may disagree)).

:roll: There had to be one

surely that should have been a :twisted: not :wink:

And let's face it if they had had leopard print spandex and plastic horned helmets they would have worn them after all, just 'cos we haven't found them don't mean they didn't.

Nige - thanks for the offer of lodgings, we'll bear that in mind.
Nathan, you are always a sweetie, thanks... some of us traders really do try hard to get the kit right and it's nice to be recognised when we do.

Debs - i think i'll try something warmer next year (prefarably fur lined), but thanks for the offer.

Thanks for all making us feel very welcome in York, we'll definately be back.
