http://timelytresses.com/trimmings/hair%20dressing/yellow%20green%20net.JPG This is the correct kind of net and ribbon to wear. Seen more on younger ladies than on older, but not unusual for older ladies either. It is not correct to call them snoods - snoods were worn during WWII. These are nets.
Fancy Headdress - This net is made of chenille, silk, or braid. A plait of velvet is placed round it, and at the side is a velvet bow. Take note my fellow reenactors, this is NOT a heavy rayon or polyester net.
c. 1910 silk chiffon Edwardian tea dress with pin tucks, textured lace accents. Closes in back with small covered buttons and loops. Long narrow sleeves have tiny mother-of-pearl buttons to close the sleeves at the wrist. Tulle under-skirt is longer than the outer layer.
