This covering is black.
I sewed it 21 years ago and the black has been fading to a lovely purple-ish color.
I sew "clippies" to the inside of my brocade coverings.
One clip for the hair next to my forehead and another for the very crown of my head.
It doesn't blow off in the wind.
You can see I also made one in white that I rarely wear. It looks more like something for a wedding on my dark hair. I added long trim too.
Again, I'm wearing McCall's Jumper 6041 in a light floral fabric.
