A brief history, these caps were always made of white fabrics (historically correct). Even while in mourning they would attach black bows, ribbons, etc., but the fabric was nearly always white, not to say that I couldn't make a black or colored one if you so desired.
This day cap is made from white cotton, with face-framing pleats, and pleated, pink satin/gross grain pleated ribon around the band, with a feminine bow just at the widows peak. There are many things that determine the wealth status or a woman, caps, in this case, depend on they type of fabric its made from. Caps made out of more luxurious fabrics, such as nets, organdy, silks or satins, were obviously for a more "well-to-do" woman. Caps made out of cotton, with a few touches of finery were of the "upper-middle" class woman, worn casually with a day or work dress. Arrange you hair into a simple bun on the crown of you head to keep to crown "poofed" up, to the Ladies that have shorter cropped hair, (as a secret between you and me) stuff some netting up into the crown to help it keep its shape. You can gently hand wash this garment, air dry, (important!) and re-iron pleats, to return them to their crisp-looking condition.

This day cap would look beautiful atop the regal head of any elegant lady, wearing a dress like Marie-Antoinette with pocket hoops or farthingale from a period fashion plate of the times, or in an empire waist, regency gown, hostessing a tea party, for Halloween, small production plays, period weddings, or just because!

If planning to request a custom bonnet, “novelty” fabrics or trying to match exact shades may be hard to do, but providing me with a mere yard of fabric can overcome that hurdle. Custom caps start at $20, not including shipping.I ship all caps/bonnet/merchandise with standard shipping, if you are interested in EXPRESS SHIPPING - PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE YOU PURCHASE
I do ship internationally, please contact me for information.

I do not accept returns :)
