2012 is almost at a close and before I do my end of the year review (and its massive), I wanted to share the last 100% finished project of the year.
Since the weeks around Christmas are always so hectic, I decided to work on a new cap for Williamsburg, namely something pretty enough to wear while lounging around. Inspired by the maid's cap in this 1775 painting by Pehr Hilleström
, I used the Kannik's Korner pattern as a base, modifying it to look more like the cap in the picture. The cap is 100% hand sewn (gasp!). The body is made from fine handkerchief linen, trimmed with antique lace ruffles and finished with teal silk ribbon.
(A helper showed up every time I tried to take a picture.)
