Who knew Martha Washington was such a fashion plate, and with such a practical design. While this cap works well for costumes as shown, I made a comparable style cap of soft knit for my sister who is recovering from chemotherapy. A bright color updates the look and makes it a modern cap that brightens the day for those who are undergoing a difficult time Martha would be proud of another use for her classic cap.
