Basic Hand Sewing Skills - Make an Overcap or Hood
Among the various items to add warmth during the changing seasons, simple hoods and over-caps were favorite choices. They were stitched of a single layer of fabric and worn over the day caps. After examining 18th century hood images and samples, students will select their fabric and hand sew a hood over a cap.
Bring a lunch. Also bring pins, needles, thread snips, fabric scissors, tape measure, and a fabric marking pencil.
