I am not "good" at covering. Everything seems to slip slide or pull. I have tried many kinds. I keep coming back to the kerchief style. When I am doing things like baking or cleaning I wear an old bandanna. I like it because it stays on.
but it's not something I want to wear to church, doctor appointments, etc. so I came up with this.
I received this pretty fabric (and a few others) free through freecycle. What I did for the pattern: I took the bandana that I usually wear and I folded it into a triangle ( the way I wear it) I copied that shape onto the fabric but about a half inch more to account for hem. I cut it our and rolled the hem and stitched.
I do not like my headcovering to "tent" around my head so I added some simple darts to the back. It ended up looking very nice. My husband said that he "Really really likes it. It looks classy."
I will definitely make more of these.
