Polyester velvet, thin wool for lining.

Second half of 16th century
Black thread (silk), glass pearls
How historically accurate is it?
Fairly. I trust the TT for accuracy, and the only actual shortcut is the velvet. Entirely hand-sewn, so 80% with penalty for not using proper silk velvet?
Hours to complete:
About 8. The pleating of the crown always takes more time than I expect.
30th of March, for photo session at Kalmar castle. I had the luxury of time, since I skipped the fairy tale challenge.
About $15 for half a yard of velvet (though it had been in my stash for a year); wool, pearls and thread from stash.
