For the Separate Robe photoshoot I needed to make myself something to put on my head, since a proper lady never would have left home whitouth something on the head.
A quick search of he internet made me decide on a simple cap. They seam both versetail and easy to make, and will go with almost every style in 18th century dress.
Thee are som pattens for caps and simple headwear out there, but I only use them to get an overal feel of the pattern.
I found some leftover fabric in my stash and cut a circle about 30 cm in diameter, a headband the lengt to go around my head and a stipe to be pleated onto the front. The only rode bump, was that i needed to piece the headcloth to get a big enough cirkle.
I cut, folded nd sewed the cap, ocasionlytrying it on my head to get a feel of the sie and shape. When finished I put a string into the chanal to be tied at the nape of the neck.
Al this took me less the one hour.
And this is how it looked on the phothoshoot.
