Turban, 1820-1835, Victoria and Albert Museum
I love the combination of textures and colors in this turban! Velvet is one of those fabrics that I generally dislike because it is almost overwhelmingly rich (like a piece of cake with too much icing), but I love seeing little hints of it paired with a nice crisp silk. The contrast is lovely.
Not knowing how to weave straw is one of the biggest disappointments of my life.
William Heath (1829)
This is what I see when I look at fashions from 1829. Pretty sure it isn’t actually satire :)

Plate IV of A Faithful Account of the Processions and Ceremonies of the Kings and Queens of England; exemplified by that of their most Sacred Majesties King George the Third and Queen Charlotte: with all the other interesting proceedings connected with that magnificent festival. Edited by Richard Thomson. London, 1820.
Street Scene by Georg Emmanuel Ortiz. The British Museum.
They don’t have many details about this print at the British Museum, but my guess is early 1820-1825, based on their clothing. Ortiz was living in Leipzig in the 1820s, so I think that this is in Germany. There are some wild pieces of headwear in this image, including the strange grey headdress on the girl in the short-sleeved spencer and the headdress of the woman directly behind her. Also, on the far left is a soldier wearing a very unusual helmet! I know very little about early 19th century German uniforms, so if anyone out there has more information about him, I sure would appreciate it!
