Description

This is a pattern for a Tudor lady's bonnet and frontlet (the items nowadays referred to as gable, kennel, pediment or English hoods). This style of headdress was fashionable from the 1490s to the 1530s, though it continued to be worn (less fashionably) till 1550. Ideal for Henry VIII's wives or other 16th century impressions. With full instructions for choosing materials, sizing and construction - perfect for reenactors.

Returns & exchanges

Please convo us if you have problems with any of our products. We will issue a refund on unused merchandise if it is returned to us in its original condition. The one exception to this rule is our previously worn costumes. We regret that we cannot offer returns or refunds on costumes, as returns on items such as these are not very practical, particularly if shipping internationally where customs duties might be involved. Therefore, please check all measurements (both yours and those of the costume!) carefully. If you have any questions about the garments or need more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Shipping policies

If you need quicker delivery, please contact us to discuss options.

The vast majority of items in our shop are posted via Royal Mail or ParcelForce, depending upon the size and weight of the package. We use the least expensive shipping option available, which generally means that items are not trackable or insured. Please contact us if you would prefer we use a different shipping method for your order.

Previously worn costumes are also be sent via courier, are trackable, and shipping prices quoted include insurance up to the value of the costume you're buying.

International customers, please note that there may be additional taxes and duties due when your order arrives, but we have no way of estimating what these may be. You will be responsible for paying these.

Additional policies

Please note, our previously worn costumes are also very occasionally for sale in one or two other forums, such as the International Living History Fair in Bruntingthorpe, England. We endeavour to keep the shop up to date, but please understand that in very rare instances the costume you're interested in may have simultaneously been sold! In that case, we would of course contact you as soon as possible to let you know.
