Ruff

The ruff is not as huge as is fashionable at Elizabeth’s court but
still it feels very strange to Cess who does not like not being able
to see behind her with a turn of the head. The ruff does not go
all the way around her neck as it might for a married woman,
but is separated at the front to show off her cleavage. Cess knows
the woman in the village whose work is to clean and starch ruffs
but she never thought she would ever wear one herself.
