Historical Sew Fortnightly: Challenge 4

 

The Challenge: Embellish

Fabric: Silk Ribbon

Pattern: No pattern, really, but I got the idea from a hat from Colonial Williamsburg and from This Blog Entry

Year: 1775

Notions: Thread

How historically accurate is it?  About as accurate as I ever get.

Hours to complete: 1

First worn: ?

Total cost: $25 in silk ribbon, about $5 in dyes and $1 in tea and coffee to darken the ribbon, and a hat I've had laying around for years
