Transiton: Frontlet and Cap pattern

This is the pattern I’ll be using for the Frontlet with veil attached.  It has a layer of wool felt to add stiffness to the frontlet , silk satin for the veil, and silk velvet for the outer layer of the frontlet.  I’ve included the measurements I used but it could be made longer or shorter depending on the person and the over length wanted.  I draped the tape measure over my head to get and idea of how long I wanted it.

The cap is made from eight wedges that form a hemisphere when sewn together.  This is the approximate shape and how to figure out the dimensions needed.
