1850'- 1860's
Winter Hood & Jacket

Nickname: The Little Red Riding Hood outfit

Description

Red woollen winter hood, lined with white quilted fabic, decorated with black soutache braid and gold thread embroidery. Paired with a red woollen jacket, lined with white quilted fabic, decorated with black soutache braid and trimmed with off-white faux fur. Red woollen Victorian Brimless hat also trimmed with faux fur and white fur muff made from re-purposed atic fox fur. The hood can also be worn with a red woollen cape in the same style and decoration. On very cold days the whole set of hood, cape and jacket could be worn together but the complete look is very bulky and as such unbecoming.
