Regency turban 101
A friend wants help picking out fabric for a new Regency turban so I thought I'd spend the afternoon doing a little Google research before our shopping trip. Here are some interesting links I thought I'd share. After all you never know when you will need a new turban! :>

http://rochestercontra.com/WomensBallClothing.pdf - handout from a Regency Ball - good overall info, helpful for when someone who needs help getting started

http://hal.ucr.edu/~cathy/dress/turb.html (Regency Fashion Page) - Regency turbans by era - pretty cool

http://fileblogs.com/Regency-Headdress--Hats-Caps-Bonnets--Bandeaux&article_27946 - interesting info on turbans and other Regency headwear

http://www.daviddfriedman.com/Medieval/miscellany_pdf/Other_Articles_V_Turban.pdf - how to drape a period middle eastern turban - always helpful to know how the original your inspiration comes from is done

http://janeaustensworld.wordpress.com/2008/02/22/bonnets-caps-and-hats-a-regency-fashion-accessory-no-lady-can-do-without/ - more on bonnets & caps but good links


Yes, and may I just say that music on websites is a nice idea but seriously annoying when you are surfing. Especially when you are already listening to your CD player. That is all.
