This elegant day cap is made of white lace net and trimmed with white folded ribbon accented with ribbon roses with a simple pearl center and ending in white bows. The cap is shown with red roses, but other colors are available. The crown of the cap features the same net edged with lace. Milliner's wire is encased in the front edge of the cap, which provides a comfortable and secure way to keep the cap on your head and can be adjusted to fit your head. The back of the cap is edged with 3 inch wide net edged with the same lace and gathered upon milliner’s wire. Two simple white ribbon tails, known as fascicules, finish the back of the cap. This is a soft light-weight cap that is easy to wear and offers a great way to complete your look. Unlike many of the day caps of the Era this cap is meant to sit on top of your finished coiffure and NOT to contain your hair. Red and White were considered by many to be patriotic Southern colors.

Day caps were worn by most married women for both morning and day wear. The social status and economic means dictating the fabrics and trims used. Many of these more elaborately trimmed caps were worn for evening wear as well.

Morning and dress caps are unusually pretty this season. They no longer resemble the old-fashioned cap, but are rather an elegant headdress." Godey's, August 1862. The CDV shows a lady wearing a similar cap.

Unsure what to do with your hair? A cap just may be the perfect answer for you.
