Hood design based on London find no. 246, as presented in the Museum of London "Textiles and Clothing" book. Triangular pieces are inserted as gussets in the sides of the hood. The button holes in the original were initially supported by an inner facing, or perhaps a lining, and we have chosen to completely line the hood in complimentary colored linen. This sort of close fitting buttoned hood is seen in manuscripts, and was generally worn by women. They were often worn open atop other clothing in a variety of ways to suit the weather. Round wood buttons, Machine buttonholes, no other visible exterior machine stitching.
Wool exterior lined in linen. Also available with linen exterior lined in linen. Colours are listed outside colour/lining colour.
Model is wearing burgundy wool lined in purple linen
