This is a *limited release* listing for the Annabel Cap Kit in either antique-white or white silk organza.
**THIS IS NOT A FINISHED CAP**
18th century caps were an essential accessory to both practically dress ones' head, but to also keep up with the latest fashion. Milliners of the time specialized in making caps quickly, as the styles rapidly changed. Be your own milliner with this cap kit and learn how to roll and finish hems and put together a lovely, single layer cap for yourself or a friend.
This style is suitable for impressions 1765-1790. Based on mezzotints from the second quarter of the 18th century. This style is particularly fashionable from 1770-1785 and would be a lovely addition to a middle-to-high class lady's wardrobe or special event. Annabel features a single layer, handstitched construction technique appropriate for the time period, two ruffles and an adjustable drawstring for fit.
This cap sits best with hair done high. Model in photo is wearing a finished Annabel cap in "Antique White." Antique White is great to pair with antique laces while the White organza works best with modern made lace.
