16th Century, Costumes, Ruffs

Working on another Ruff!

I had two or three days with my internet not working or being on again, off again. So I started another hand sewn ruff (I may have a problem).

I just finished putting the neckband on and this time I made sure to sew down every tiny pleat that I could on both sides. I have no idea how they managed to sew the pleats to the band in the 16th century without high-powered lights, I had issues even with my ott light over my shoulder. I adjusted (enhanced!) the photo to show the stitching.
