Hat of the Day Sketch – Opera Hood, ca. 1858

February 9, 2010

This opera hood is made from light pink silk faille and is dressed with white lace and pink satin bow trim.  It reminds me of the 18th century Calash which protected the enormous hairstyles of the period by arching over instead of sitting on the hair like a hat would.

Think of it as a covered wagon for your head.  (wink)
