"London Head Dresses" (1803) - "Hats were purchased at millinery shops, but could easily be modified and updated at home with new ribbons, lace, flowers, feathers, and other ornaments. Hence the frequent publication of fashion plates of hats, especially in the less expensive publications, like this one, which would have provided the middle class lady with ideas on updating her bonnets and caps."
