Authentically styled day cap from the 1774-1783 era. During this period personal body and hair care was not paramount in daily life, and the ladies had problems keeping their hair clean. They wore this mob cap to help keep their hair in order. It was also worn underneath a broad brim hat. It is a working woman’s cap and not used for dress. Identical to one illustrated in Klinger’s Distaff Sketch book; muslin like originals. A drawstring is used to gather the circular cap, one size fits all. Spruce the cap up by adding lace or eyelet.
