How Long a Liripipe?


Making a hood for mid-to-late 15th century and wondering if Liripipe length changes with date. Was a long liripipe out of fashion by then, or does evidence suggest a mix of styles by preference? Anyone know? Mark

Re: Rivetting Points

I read way back in an archaeology report that residue of tiny iron rivets found with aiglets. I snip the fine pointy ends off carpet tacks and use them with success. Interesting thing is, they rust a little and swell, gripping the point and aiglet tight. Not as pretty as copper though.
