Description

I recently bought a pattern for a medieval hood with 4 variations and a scalloped hem option. I had a few hours to spare and an old costume to cut up for the outer material.

The pattern called only for a facing at the scalloped hem, but I found it easier and more convenient to just line the entire hood.This will also be nicer to the skin as the wool is rather scratchy.
If you make the hood view A or B with a “tail” or “strud”, I’ll recommend to use the pattern for view C for the lining, as the “tail” easily can become bulky.

The outer material is a grey-ish brown felted wool from an ugly tunic made a long time ago. The lining fabric is made of bright red (almost currant-colored) nettle. The nettle fabric looks and feels a lot like linen, but is much softer and has a nice hand.

the scalloped edge is highlighted by squares of outer fabric cut out, leaving the lining visible. I got the technique from a BurdaStyle magazine.

It took an afternoon (like 3-4 hours?) to make.

Material Notes

Felted wool from an old tunic, 0,75 m of red nettle fabric (both the pattern and the nettle fabric is bought at www.historicum.dk)
