Christine’s “Mob cap” as Il Muto maid

The “mob cap” was traditionally made up of a white fabric pleated or gathered around the crown, where decorative trims and ribbons adorns it, ending in a frilled or laced brim. The name “mob cap” stems from the French Revolution in the late 18th century, where the style was sported by working women and others often involved in the riots. But it was a style worn by all levels of society. When worn under hats, only the laced brim would be visible.
