As early as the famed interview between Henry the Eighth and Francis the First, at Guisnes, at one of the masques there, ten ladies were attired after the fashion of Millaine, in rich tissue and cloth of silver raised, parted, travers, and ruffed sleeves, with foresleeves pendant, knit with points of gold, and cowls or coifs of gold piped,(**) and Millaine bonnets of crimson satin drawn through with cloth of gold.(***) Two years after, at one of Wolsey's banquets, "eight ladies had Millian gowns of white satin; on their heads, cowls and Millian bonnets of gold with jewels."(***) Though these last citations affect female dress alone, yet it is certain that the men's was also influenced from the same quarter.
