So I've had this challenge finished for the last couple of days, but I've too lazy too write up the post.
For the tutorial of how I made my Regency turban, click here.
The Challenge: #17 Yellow
Fabric: Half a yard of burgundy linen, a strip of yellow plaid cotton, and some cotton muslin to line it.
Pattern: Based off of this tutorial from Festive Attyre and this method for making the roll.
Year:1810ish, I didn't really try for a specific year
Notions: Cotton, silk, and polyester thread, brown and yellow polyester trim and cording, two tassels, brown poly-cotton piping, about 180 fake pearls, one paper fedora, polyester ribbon, cotton batting, one metal and one plastic button.
How historically accurate is it? Most of the trims are polyester and I didn't copy a design specifically, but the fabric is okay for the period and I pulled elements directly from fashion plates, not to mention the whole thing is handsewn, so maybe 50-60%?
Hours to complete: 15ish?
First worn: Not yet
Total cost: The linen was $4, the muslin a leftover, hat was $1, plaid was $2.50 a yard, trims were mostly dollar packs but the pearls were $4 a pack so let's say $25 abouts.
