Girl's Wool Hood, 1850s/60s

Today's Fort project: cutting out hoods for winter wear.  I even got one finished:

Girl's wool hood, 1850s-1860s, from Sewing Academy "Quick Tufted Hood" project

The pattern is Liz Clark's Quick Tufted Hood (instructions and the sunbonnet pattern it's adapted from).  The first one I made has no batting, just wool with cotton lining and a wool contrast facing, so I skipped the tying step.  It works on this small of a garment, but a larger hood would probably benefit from the added stability tufts or quilting.
