1700s Cap, Draft 1

Sewing

I am drafting a 1700s style cap from scratch. Here is the first draft, done in a green cotton I had lying around. This is a learning piece for my Use Up My Fabric Stash 2019 project.

There are definitely some improvements that I want to make to this pattern: I want to make the top of the brim wider, draft a thinner band option, and I want to settle on a way to handle gathering the back of the cap. This is a good first step, though.
