The Challenge: #10 Art - 18th Century Cap
Inspiration: My original inspiration was a sketch I found on pinterest of a woman putting out washing, then I spotted 'the spinner, by vincent van gogh' 1889 and couldn't resist trying to restage it.
Fabric: Poly cotton
Pattern: none. self drafted based on images in portraits.
Year: 1780-1800 (but could suit various eras) you can never have too many caps.
How historically accurate is it? I've seen them in many paintings. I've drafted the shape from the images I saw. Only no accurate thing is the material composition.
Hours to complete: 3.5 hours.
First worn: To take photo's
