Lovely picture, and thanks, Kat! The maiden’s lace appears to be a coiffe of the Plougastel region near Brest. I’ve been interested in Brittany for many many years.
This is the uniform I want issued to me in heaven. It is gorgeous.
It’s lovely—and title is wonderful. How often does one hear a young woman described as a maiden, anymore?
