The last veils I have to show you from my collection are my kerchiefs. The first one I ordered from She Maketh Herself Coverings a couple of years ago. This is the “Bush Veiling” or Dutch Cap which is a popular style for them to sell. It is made out of ivory eyelet fabric with a small lace trim.
You can’t see much from the front.
From the Back. The kerchief doesn’t come with snaps or anything to hold it underneath my hair. I’ve just been using a small safety pin. My hair is in a ponytail again and two clippies hold the kerchief on my head at the sides. [I will take more photos later to show what the kerchiefs look like laying out flat.]
The following kerchief I traced from the Dutch Cap but made a little longer in the back. I used some leftover soft poly cotton fabric from my stash. I sewed a rolled edge all the way around instead of using lace. This gives a slight ripple effect to the edge of the fabric.
I wear the kerchiefs most often these days because of the heat. Plus, they tend to be less “shocking” to the sensibilities of others. The Cap makes folks drop their coffee or stare in traffic and miss their turn. I’m serious! If I would be lead to adopt the Plain life-path, this wouldn’t deter me but for now, I’d rather just be more low-key.
