CWH02 - A Variety of Lappet Caps Pattern - mid-18th Century to Early 19th Century. These lappet caps were commonly worn by the French in both Europe and North America and were often worn by country women, farmers, maids, and genteel ladies. This pattern includes suggestions for fabrics, documentation, and options in the construction. This is a great collection of British caps that come as close as one could find to lappet caps, given that true lappets do not appear to be a feature of British caps, but rather a reflection of earlier French influence, particularly in North America. These caps are made of a variety of sturdy or delicate white cottons or linens, reflecting the fact that these caps could be worn by women of any age and of varying levels of society -- country women, farmers, maids, or genteel ladies. This pattern is historically accurate and drafted based on solid research and documentation of literally hundreds of extant examples. It has excellent engineering and very clear sewing instructions as well as recommendations as to historically appropriate materials. Include instructions for the novice seamstress along with options for more experienced seamstresses. Regency, Colonial, American Revolutionary War, French Revolutionary War, Indian Wars, War of 1812.
