Over the last week or so, I have been working on a Juliet cap. It sits on the back of my head and is secured with clips. It is made of a mystery jacquard sample I had in my stash, lined with broadcloth, and edged with gold and cream cord. It is trimmed with pearls and gold braid.
The cap with trim and pearls added
With a jewel and hanging bead added at centre front.
Below are some images that inspired my design -
