Comment from Kay Gnagey: When I did my big "accessories on CdVs" counting project, I found that about 2/3 of all women depicted in indoor dress wore SOMETHING on their head - often all one can see it a bit of ribbon or such. This net, if worn, would give a similar frontal look. So I would not restrict it to the well-to-do class leisure wear -- there are many chores/work women do that is not dirty or requires rough clothing and this would fit the "SOMETHING on the head" category very well....
