Woman's and Girl's Caps
Everyday Headwear

View A: Round Eared Cap has several variations, including single or double ruffles, and ruffles that are continuous and un-split at top center of the forehead, or that are split at that point. There are also two sizes of caul (back piece) for the woman's size, which can accommodate different head sizes and hairstyles, and a Girl’s or Small Woman’s size. The caul neckline has a narrow drawstring. c.1740-1810.
View B: Mob Cap is quite adjustable, and is given only in the size of the original caps. The top of the headpiece (front piece) has two delicate drawstrings, and the caul neckline has a narrow drawstring. c. 1740-1820. Worn especially by older women during the early 1800s.
View C: Grand Coiffe is a sheer cotton muslin head covering frequently worn over another cap, such as the round eared cap, sometimes under a hat, and is also worn for un-dress (inside home) without a cap. It can have a very narrow lace trim on the hems. The back of the head has a delicate drawstring, which draws up the triangular cut of the coiffe into a nicely fitting shape. c. 1730-1790.

Notions and Tools for above Bonnets

Pre-cut "Bonnetboards"
Ready-made pasteboard bonnet fronts

These are the prepared stiffener layer of the bonnets from our pattern. They are hand cut of single thickness pasteboard, with two coats of shellac. They may need to be touched up, as described in the KK-6603 pattern directions.
No directions are included with the pasteboard fronts.
They will ship flat, in a large package, so there must be a place where the package can be delivered safely out of the weather and wind.

Pasteboard Front - KK-6603-PF
