Ladies Day Cap

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Ladies of the Civil War era wore lace or fine muslin caps indoors or at home. Ladies who reenact Civil War era can wear one of these delicately fashioned confections to masque short modern hair lengths. I have recreated these fine caps using only fine materials such as used in the 1850-1870s. Cotton net, or cotton point d'esprit, dotted swiss cotton, fine cotton muslin, 100% silk ribbons and cotton lace. Millinery wired to keep shape and tuck under your low hair bun. Lappets are also decorated with fine lace. I have tried to recreate the look of these day caps per the prevailing fashion from the Godey's Ladies Book and Magazine, 1856.
