A fun post. Just one point--the lady in the illustration of La Somme le roy is not wearing a wimple. The white strap around her chin is a barbette. The scalloped strip of fabric around her head is a fillet. The white cap next to her head is most likely a St. Birgitta's coif (the surviving example is said to have belonged to St. Birgitta of Sweden). This head gear indicates a married woman. And yes, I do far too much thirteenth century reenactment.
Hmmm.. .an interesting floral bouquet with a hint of vellum.
