Victorian Hat / Morning Cap

 
An 1850s lady wears a morning cap and robe.
 
 
 

Victorian women often wore an informal cap indoors. This headdress was referred to as a morning, breakfast, or day cap. These caps were either simply made or lavished with frills and ribbons.

 

 
   
As well, middle-aged ladies wore these caps for their evening dress with color ribbon to suit the wearer. During the first half of the nineteenth century white caps were also worn under outdoor bonnets creating a ruffle frame around the face.
 
   

This mid-nineteenth century lady’s cap was most likely worn during the mourning period due to the black color. The cap is edged with a double black lace scalloped border and trimmed with black ribbon and a center-back black bow. The cap has long black ribbon ties.
