A cap is an absolute necessity for any woman in the 18th century. While caps range from simple to extravagant, the basic round-eared style is commonly found. The linen makes these easy to wash and durable, as well as gives you a perfectly historical look with an appropriate fabric. The double ruffled linen cap has a medium caul with ruffles on either side. The small drawstring in the back ensures one size fits all.

My 18th-century wardrobe includes more than a dozen caps—some I’ve hand-sewn, and some I’ve purchased, from various sources. This particular cap turns out to be my favorite, so I’ve returned to buy a couple more. It’s flattering and roomy—and looks particularly nice with a ribbon & bow. Keep the ruffles fanning in opposite directions (as shown here), or press them to go the same way. (The price is pretty competitive, too!)
