How to Make a Tudor Ruff?

Answer

To make a Tudor ruff, first you will need to make a neckband out of material. Then take a long strip of material, such as organza or silk; you can add lace to one side if you wish. To the other side of the strip sew on some wire. Alternatively you could use a strip that already comes with wire inside. Bend the wire so that it makes loop shapes and sew it onto your neck band evenly.
