My friend Katarina came over for sewing and tea today. She made a 15th century Italian headdress and I made a winter bonnet to wear with my red wool redingote.
I decided to make one of the styles from 1806-1807. It is made from heavy fusible interlining, stainless steel wire and duct tape ;)
And velvet, satin bias tape and velvet ribbon.
