This hand-drafted epattern is based on the popular 'Dolly Varden' style inspired by the 18th century character from Charles Dickens' novel 'Barnaby Rudge'. This 'shepherdess' style turns up again and again in paintings, advertisements and illustrations from the era. While this particular pattern is tailored to the 1870s-80s, it could be tweaked for Regency era. It sits on the head well, but needs a hatpin to secure.

*Patterns are for personal use only. Your purchase supports an independent designer/vendor/artist. Sure, you could copy this and send it to your friends, but you'd be stealing from me. I spent hours and hours creating this by hand, with a pen and paper. It's only 12 dollars. Please don't steal from me.*
