New Silk Headcoverings with Lace

After buying yards and yards of lace at the fabric warehouse I found in Tucson, I started experimenting while I was making Dupioni Snoods and Convertible Headcovering/Headbands.  I'm really excited with the results!  I stumbled across a way to make a headband that looks awesome two ways and then converts into a fuller covering that offers more complete coverage (and a different look).  I just had to post some of the pictures that I had Paul snap yesterday.  All three of these are dupioni silk with lace trim.  I did add a plain black dupioni cover/headband and a plain charcoal grey dupioni cover/headband yesterday too!  And there were five more cotton covers from the day before in a variety of colors!

Here's the latest, showing off all three options for my new design:


  1. That's funny, I had some lace headbands in mind for my shop too. We must be laceaholics :). Your headbands look great!

  2. I believe your store will do very well when you open it. :)
    Will you be making mantillas as well?


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
