The best part is that my newest snoods are a diverse bunch. There will be satin and lace and crepe and cotton. And I will be adding a new line with four "Little Girl" snoods (one of which Mae is modeling here) that will start at $12 (for the cotton ones, like the snood shown). Because the amount of fabric used in making snoods is rather small, and I've been shopping fabric sales, I'm able to offer my snoods at very competitive prices, which was part of my initial intention when opening my shop. I set out to design headcoverings that stayed put, were beautiful (and well made) and didn't break the bank, because I know many of you, like our family, live on a limited budget, and I'm happy to say that I think I've met that goal.
One of the things I'm very excited about is how these snoods fit. Because I have an elastic band across the back of each snood they fit a wide variety of heads. The snood Mae is modeling would also fit Sadie comfortably (she's currently a size 5 to give you an idea of the range) and could fit a child who is larger than Sadie, although it does fall short of expanding enough for an adult to wear.
The pattern I've designed has the advantage of being one piece, so the only seams are those that run along the edges of the fabric, making them quite comfortable. It's taken some time over the past month coming up with the perfect design, and quite a bit of trial and error (we have quite a few "play snoods" in our house that are almost perfect, that the girls can have fun with!) but I'm very pleased with the finished design!
And I can hardly wait to show you my line of lace snoods!
Also, to answer a question I received, snoods are appropriate for Mass! I've worn veils and snoods and hats and scarfs to Mass. There really aren't any rules on what you have to (or don't have to!) wear! I've experimented and what I pick depends on the weather and how unruly the girls are acting when we leave (I'll admit that lately they've been so obsessed with my coverings that when I wear a chapel veil I also bring along a snood just in case they get too distracted... because they don't seem to obsess over the snoods as much as they do over the beautiful lace!).
