I want to make.. what I believe are known as "millstone" or "ruff" collars..?
The large round ruffled collars that would have been worn during Shakespearean or Elizabethan times..

Here are some images of the kind of thing I have in mind:

I can't seem to find any instructions online searching.. so thought I would ask here to see if anyone would have any ideas..

Thanks
