New Winter Hood

This lappet style winter hood is based on three lappet style winter hoods in my collection. This one 100% silk plaid on the outside with cream, deep purple, and green tones. On the inside is a 100% silm black taffeta. It is batted with cotton batting.

This style is nice for protecting the face from wind and precipitation due to the depth of the brim and length of the lappets. The brim can be turned back.

This hood is entirely hand quilted. The interior and exterior were quilted separately. As with the originals, the exterior of the hood is lightly quilted, just catching the silk to the batting. I used a combination of hand and machine sewing because my hands weren’t quite strong enough for one interior seam.
