i am looking for someone that either makes the kapp style headcoverings or might know of someone who does.. i have thought about making a trip to one of the amish communities and see if they might sell them...
Plaily Dressed or Plain and Simple headcoverings on the internet has traditional coverings.
Kaites Merchantile might I haven't been there in awhile. I don't know anyone who makes these personally as I live in Oregon not really Amish country and the menonites i have seen around here have adapted to wear the round doily type veils or scarfs. used to see the mesh Kapps all the time but not any more.
thank you i will look on those sites... i have a dear friend that has the nebraska kapp headcovering that she is going to send me so that way i have one for the winter time.. she got it from candle on the hill... and i do know what you mean about the mennonites changing from the kapps to the veils.. the mennonites here in north alabama are changing also...
well yesterday i received the nebraska kapp covering... it is very easy to assemble and to sew which i love!!! all it is 2 pieces to put together... the brim and the crown... and i have a cape dress pattern and then a pattern that common sense patters sell... i just need to find a modesty vest pattern to put with it
Hello all.. Well I stopped using the Nebraska Kapp covering as a covering.. I kept getting asked if I were Amish and I started praying and asking God where was he leading me in my life.. And it sure wasnt the way I thought.. I thought that I would one day become a part of the Amish world.. I have talked about it since I was a little girl.. And I even thought that if I started dressing like a Amish lady then maybe I would be accepted into their lifestyle more easier.. And boy was I soo wrong.. Anyways... I am back to square one again.. Back to using a short hanging veil and then as I am waiting. I am going to be looking for a Mennonite kapp.. I am attending a Mennonite Christian Fellowship church.. And loving every minute of it!! I am soo blessed to be able to find a church that I agree with so much!! The other church that I was attending didnt have the same beliefs as I do.. They strongly disagree with the Head covering.. And there were other things that they disagree with also.. I just felt like God was leading me to something less "Worldly".. I never would have thought that the Lord would lead me to the church that I am attending now.. I have found that people that you thought were your friends end up not being truely your friends anymore.. I have had that happen to me already.. People that go to the church that I used to attend are no longer talking to me because they say that I am not thinking clearly when I say the Lord has called me to live a plain life.. And so it has hurt me to think that even though they claim they were my friend it was never true.. I know this is going to be a hard road to go on.. With no one in my family living the same lifestyle.. And believe me it is hard.. When my brothers and sisters are watching tv in the living room I go to my bed room and read a book or write a letter to a friend.. It is hard when you say I dont listen to certain things and your brother looks at you and says "you used to"... And every time I tell him.. That was before the Lord called a different lifestyle for me.. Please keep me in your prayers though.. The church that I am attending now.. Has been very nice.. Under most certain things they would not let someone become a member of their church still living at home with no one in the same lifestyle.. but I didnt want to move out until the day I get married and I talked to the elders about that and they said that it would be fine with them that I stay at home til I am married.. I am soo happy that they have let this happen.. They know that I am going to be true to the word of the churchs beliefs.. And I would not do anything that would bring shame to the church or to God.. Well I hope and pray that each of you have a very blessed day!!! Blessings, Elizabeth

I have a seamstress who makes my Kapps for $5.00 for black and $7.00 for white kapps with strings, you also pay for shipping, she can make the areas around the ears rounded or squared off to cover the ears..
Just email me privately for the information as she is Old Order and has no computer.
Oh yes I am very pleased with the books.. I have both the cape dress books and the headship veiling book.. I have started making my first kapp and I am very happy at how the "trial" one turned out I am looking for the stiff white mesh that the mennonites use for their kapps to make mine out of.. As of right now I am still going every now and then to the Mennonite church.. So it would be nice to have a covering that is what they wear.. Have a wonderful blessed night.. Blessings, Elizabeth
