Unboxing: Plaid Wadded Hood

A nice winter hood arrived today. This is a wadded or pumpkin style hood in a red and black plaid silk taffeta. Inside is a brown polished cotton lining and a tan silk facing.

This is the largest of the wear spots that almost all appear to be from rubbing in storage. This is part of the triple set cords.

Here you can see the cord placement, a triple set closest to the front, followed by two double set cords.

This shows some of the interior:

  1. July did go by in a blur. Please ask Clara to keep good thoughts for Sandi, a 17-year-old wonderful kitty who is coming to live with me while her mommy recuperates. Hopefully Sandi will also enjoy living in a historical sewing household.
