This cap pattern has been modified with permission of the Tudor Tailor ( to reflect their research. When I first created the pattern all I could tell from the period drawings was the shape, the drawings did not show that the cap was made up from 4 pattern pieces not two and the center section (forehead cloth) was separate from the cap. It is a very versatile pattern now. You can wear it for middle or upper class, with the forehead cloth or without and under most Elizabethan hats such as, Elizabethan Flat Cap, Tall Hat, Arched Brim Hat and even French Hoods. This cap should be made up in white or near white linen.
