I still need to finish making my husband’s 18th century garments.
One thing that’s been sitting around halfway finished was a hair accessory.
He won’t be wearing a wig (that is, unless he has to cut his hair), but I wanted him to have enough items to make him feel dressed up from head to toe. I decided to make him the bourse that would go with a bagwig.
Instead of just tying a ribbon around his ponytail, I added the pouch part as well.
His hair is very curly, and although it’s been getting longer, the length takes forever to look long, and the ends can poof out a bit. With the bourse, or hair pouch part, it will help smooth out and lengthen his hair and make him feel like he’s dressed up enough.
I’m hoping it will help him dress his look up enough without having to worry about styling too much, as well as protect the fabrics of his costumes from some of the products he uses to fix his hair.
Now let’s just hope he doesn’t have to cut his hair any time soon! At least this part is finished, if I do have to eventually get a wig for him.
