i'd much rather wear it than an english gabled hood from tudor times... *barf*

For anybody interested in acquiring a mob cap, take a look at www.headcoverings.com and www.prayercoverings.com . Both have caps for sale; the former markets their cap as a 'mob cap' 'Headcoverings' also sell a variety of coverings perfect for all ages and occasions.

I think Charlotte Corday made the mob caps popular for younger women,as she appeared wearing one to her execution( and looking quite pretty, from the pictures i've seen), but this might just be an urban legend. i think they're charming and cute, if worn correctly. do you know how to sew one?

I think they can be cute on occasion, but overall I find them just ugly. They seem to make even the liveliest coquette seem like Granny from the Riding Hood fable.

Love them. Altough some models give the appearance of a giant flower munching away one's head :-)

I think, like all hats, it rather depends on the shape of your face. The ones that are quite ruffly round the face look adorable on me, and I have several, but at the same time I know lots of women who look just terrible in them.

They make one look like an old lady no matter how young you are!

@laurel Ann I think they make good bed caps!

@Corinne I have to agree, if they were in style I would probably own one, maybe pair it up with a hat for cooler summer days at the races.

@Mary Yes fastening it under the chin would annoy me. Mine would just stay atop my full pouf maybe with a hat pin or two!

@Arabella A lot of elder ladies did wear them! For their modest qualities- so your theater was right on! Of course some bright ribbon could give it a more youthful edge... /considers making a mob cap

Mob caps always make me think of elderly women, for some reason, which is absurd, because they would have been popular with the young at one time. In the days when I was a part of readers' theater, those playing elderly characters always wore mob caps--that's probably why. The younger characters always wore vivaciously curly wigs that resembled Irish dance wigs.

2010-01-27T10:56:50.701-05:00

I would wear one, if it was the right one. I'd rather have one that tied in the back, not under the chin. They are cute though!

Fascinating information, thanks for sharing with your readers. I really love your blog, it's very well done, interesting and informative. I don't know if I would wear a mob cap or not, but if it were all the rage I just might! All the best to you, Corinne



Interesting post!

I have never thought mob caps very flattering. Give me millinery finery any day!

2010-01-26T19:28:51.029-05:00

Hat pins, hat pins! That and ribbon must have been the only way to keep them on tight! I am sure even the "under the chin ribbon" failed on many a windy day! :o)

I wonder how easily it flew off ones head. Loved the post.
