Pumpkin Hood in Shop

This wadded style winter hood was often called a pumpkin hood. This type of hood hugs the head like a snuggly warm pillow.

This hood is based on several pumpkin hoods in my collection using the same techniques found in the originals. The exterior is an forest green silk taffeta. The lining is a mohogany brown cotton sateen. The super soft wadding inside is a local wool. It is trimmed with a soft vintage moire ribbon in chocolate brown bows.

I do want you to notice the crease in the silk on the bavolet. Despite ironing before cutting and ironing the pieces, this crease came back as I sewed. I think it will relax over time. I just want you to be aware of it.
