Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
I am being moved to cover my hair, but I am not sure what covering to use. I don't want to stand out too much, so I was thinking maybe a bandanna that is the same colour as my hair?
Could people here tell me what kind of covering they use, and how they came to that covering? It would be much appreciated.
There are several vendors on eBay that sell very nice, simple, inexpensive hijab caps. I really like my little lace ones which tie at the nape of my neck and have a tiny brim at the front. They do the trick!
I'll have to have a look!
No, I have not! But I am working on it. :)

Did you work out a solution for the black velvet dress conundrum?

What great replies! I appreciate the links. I like seeing what other women are creating out there.
Like Isabel, I tend to be more on the traditional side. I wear my hair up in a mennonite bun with a traditional head covering over it. I make mine out of muslin, poplin, linen and organdy in both white and black. The color and cap material depends on my needs for the day; I find that black works well in business situations and the organdy for more formal occasions. (Although this does confuse my Amish neighbors as a black cap is reserved for unmarried females and I'm obviously married. They must think we Quakers have no rules.) When there is heavy work to do on the farm and the overalls come out, I usually wear this kerchief or this snood. I wear the snood frequently, as it makes a good covering that helps when I'm in the company of those who are uncomfortable with the traditional covering. I'm still looking for a veil that works for me on down hair days.
ps. Wow - I really like Garlands of Grace! Sometimes I feel the need to be inconspicuous in my testimony and this would work well. Just last night the spouse and I revisited the "black velvet dress" discussion. He wants me to have a black velvet dress to wear at Christmas and special events and I haven't been able to work out a compromise.
