Fashionable Regency ladies didn’t only wear bonnets. Depending upon the event, and particularly if an indoors occasion such as the opera, a ball, or dinner, a finely dressed lady adorned her perfect coiffure with a wide array of embellishments.
One hair option commonly seen in fashion plates and era portraits were flowers, as the two image examples show. Visit my Pinterest for numerous boards containing fashion plates and portraits from the period for additional examples: www.pinterest.com/sharonlathan62
Here I have a simple flexible plastic headband which I covered with soft cotton mull and then a creamy white satin. These layers not only create a beautiful appearance but also cushion the hard plastic for a comfortable fit on the head.
Decorating this band is an assortment of tiny fabric yellow and white flowers, fabric leaves, and sheer yellowish-green ribbon.
The band is flexible so will fit any adult head size. The interior band measurement from tip-to-tip is 17″.
