It didn’t take long to sew this mid-18th century lappet cap by hand. Here are now some detail pictures of the cap.
All the raw edges are finished with a combination of a running and a whip stitch.
The cap strings are also finished with this stitch.
The crown I’ve gathered with cartridge pleats before I’ve attached it to the brim piece; but I should’ve gathered the crown with rolled whipped gathers which I didn’t know when I’ve sewn the cap some years ago. Here’s my tutorial about how to gather and attach the crown with rolled whipped gathers.
And some picture of me wearing the lappet cap.
