On this page you will find a few ladies garments, that were worn during the Jacksonian period

The image below is a copy of the Hall day cap, that was worn by Mrs. Hall in May of 1832 when she along with her husband and other family members were brutally murdered at their homestead during the first days of the Black Hawk war.  The original cap is on display in Utica Illinois in the LaSalle County Historical Society Museum.  Notice the original cap is made of printed material with a fine pattern.

Day Cap, Plain

This is a very basic day cap.  It is shown in a print, though it can certainly be made in plain white as was also customary.  The frill around the crown has been pleated, but can also be gathered for a slightly different effect.
