To follow up A Little Bit o' This from last last night, I thought I'd start the Past Projects posts with some miscellaneous historical projects:
First up: My second attempt at an 1860s Quilted Winter Hood. Created two Octobers ago for my part in the Penfield Ghostwalk, and donned again for this year's ghostwalk as well as Yuletide in the Village. The hood is constructed from wool, cotton batting, and lined with cotton broadcloth. Machine quilted and each inside seam was whipstitched to prevent fraying.
