Earlier this year I wrote an article for Your Wardrobe Unlock’d about the “spaniel ear hairstyle” that was hugely popular in the 17th century. I have now posted in on Madame Isis’t Toilette, so this is a shout-out for you who doesn’t follow that blog but are interested in the 17th century.
Part 1covers the history of the hairstyle and some 17th century hair care advice.
Part 2: step-by-step instruction for how to create the hairstyle.
I sent a
mail to the woman I bought the wool yarn for my stomacher from to show her the
result and she posted a very nice post about it at her blog Broderibloggen.
