Blue vine shaped coif
Today's picture is of one of my very early attempts at a coif. It is a shaped coif (rather than gathered) and is made of a base fabric of cotton. It is embroidered with a simple design in DMC floss. The design is worked in stem stitch, and there is a line of running stitch through the lace.
I adapted the design from several similar designs in Modelbuch Aller Art. It is hand sewn with purchased cotton bobbin lace around the face area. Lucet cord ties were hand made by Heather. I have found shaped coifs to be very comfortable to wear over short hair that can't be hair taped.
