Houppelade and Hennin
Here is the Houppelade I made for more maternity garb.  I' hoping it will grow with me.

Here is my houppelande and hennin.  The whole reason for making this dress was so I could make the crazy hat to go with it.

Bcause I live in Atlanta where it is usually crazy hot, I made the fur collar and cuffs removable.

The belt came on some cheap shorts from Old Navy I bought afew years ago.  It looks tablet woven, so I thought it would work nicely.

The truncated hennin reminds me of one of those hats monkeys wear.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The hennin is actually made from a small basket I covered with fabric.  I got the idea from Cynthia Virtue's website here.

The instructions for the veil are in the Medieval Tailor's Assistant.
