DON’T YOU HATE IT WHEN YOU FIND OUT ABOUT SOMETHING AMAZING- AN UNBELIEVEABLE OPPORTUNITY- BUT YOU ONLY HAVE TWO DAYS! This was my creation completed in less than one day.
With slight modifications- this was my inspiration:
“A very tall oval shaped calash bonnet made out of finely made black taffeta and lined in light pink china silk. The calash bonnet became popular during the 1760’s and was worn to protect the towered powdered hairstyles fashionable during the 18th century. They were named “calash” bonnets after the french word “caleche” (carriage) as they resembled the fold down tops of fine carriages. "
