Women's Caps and Bonnets 1790-1820
Photos of original caps and reproduction bonnets

Page under construction! More Photos coming!


View A - Embroidered Two Piece Day Cap

Above: This is a photo of the original cap, showing the full embroidery. The blue ribbon is not original, but has been run through the eyelet holes to draw the cap up to show the shape as it would be worn. Please note the starch is weak, so the front is drooping. Click image!

Above: Detail of the embroidery on the original cap. The stem line on the left encases the seam. The full embroidery pattern is included in this pattern. Only White floss should be used, but variations of stitches could be used. If doing embroidery on your cap, we recommend using at least a row of something along the seam line, and the same on the line which echoes the seam and enhances the elongated shape of the cap.

View B - Three Piece Day Cap with Embroidered Border

Left: This is a photo of the original cap. Notice the embroidered border, which runs from side to side in a continuous line (no reverse from one side to the other). The main headpiece section of the cap is whip gathered to the circular back piece, and the ruffle is whip gathered to the headpiece. Note the small cord used in drawing up the back neck. Click image!
