So, I have decided that the full covered look is just not for me, at least not all day every day.
I have settled on wide cloth headbeads that tie at the base of the head. I can adjust it throughout the day, and keep the headaches at bay.
I bought a few, but when I realized how easy they would be to make... I started working on my first homemade one! It kind of looks like the ones at Garlands of Grace, but a bit different.

Just wanted to share.

The tichels weren't giving me a headache so much unwanted attention. The headband is less... screamy?... and allows me to go about my day without having to stop every 13 seconds and explain that no- i am not a noviate/postulate, no I am not orthodox, and no I am not Amish/Mennonite.

I am glad you : your tichel. I love mine as well, but they are going to be for Church, now. Give my mantialls a break!

Me too ... I actually keep thinking about buying one or two for home wear, and I don't even cover at home.

I had a little giggle when I read this.

The only one who consistantly asks me questions about my cover is my sister. You'd think she'd be be used to it by now! ha ha. Everyone else takes it in stride.

I'm uber glad you found something that works for you that doesn't get you too many questions!

Its laundry day and I best get at it!

Hello ladies,
I had heard there was a headcovering group on this board, and I finally found it!
I have covered full time for at least 8 years now. I moderate a group devoted to this subject and have tons of links in our blog.
I have enjoyed getting to know other ladies of like mind on the net:

I wear a tichel, but in the past tended towards the OGBB, Mennonite and charity styles.
The tichel is a much better fit for dh and I though.

Do you sew?
The wrap style over at www.tznius.com is extremely easy to make. I have made several now, and by far, my favorites are the denim and linen ones.
All you need to know is how to use scissors, a measuring tape and sew a straight line.

I ordered two tichels from coveryourhair.com. They are really thin, light weight, and square. I am not sure I really like them. Are they all square? I think I would prefer a longer, more rectangular one.

Not to mention that I am just ending my Great Shedding (I get after having a baby) and my hair is now about a third to a quarter what it usually is, it is REALLY thin. (Yes, it really sheds THAT much!)

I just can't keep the things on! I attached a comb, but it only made it hold in the one place and it slipped off everywhere else. Perhaps I am just putting the comb in the wrong place (center top)? Because of my shedding, my hair now looks extreemly frazzled and I think I would LOVE to wear the covering (partly for "covering" reasons and partly for looks). Perhaps I am just not able to get them to work.

What is a standard tichel size (and how do you pronounce it anyways?)? And is there a place that I can find one bigger than the ones I have?

I also like simplicity and "old fashioned", so I guess I am picky about colors and patterns (I don't like a lot of the patterns I see or the "standard" colors or prints used).

Kidzaplenty~ Not sure how to link to individual posts, but check back at post #194 in this thread. Pretty much every store I linked to sells rectangular scarves (or "big honkin' rectangles" as I will now forever be calling them, thank you smeisnotapirate*).

*Note: You'll be pleased to note that, having not gotten around to buying drapes for the new apartment yet, my enormous scarves are subbing in for the purpose quite nicely at the moment

Tichel is pronounced with a gravely sounding K. Its a Hebrew word.

The trick to keeping them on is to use 4 small clippies, one on each side of the ear, or two large clippies behind the ear.
Mine never slip.
I have a series of pics on our blog that I posted today, showing how I wear mine.
I do not have any clips in, as I was taking a bunch of pics
The blue and white one is a long rectangular one, and the other is square.
Square ones from Tznius are 36" by 36".
Most of mine a bit smaller, as I bought them at an indian retailer.

What type of clippies do you use? And thanks for posting those pics. I think I have the idea of how to put it on and wrap it, I just can't seem to keep it in place. Will any clips work? I am not sure what kind will stay in my hair, as most really slip right out of my hair. Or does adding the tichel with the clips keep them from slipping as they keep it from slipping?

I feel like I am just incompetent asking all these silly, redundant questions, but I wish it would just come easy, as easy as it seems for some people.

I use the snap clips. When you use them on both sides of the ear, the tichel will stay in place all day.
Wrapping the ends over the head after clipping, covers the clips up pretty well too.
You can use nail polish to paint clips to match the coverings as well. The polish is flexible, so it does not chip easily.

I still love my skirts from Style J, P&L. I posted about them a page or two back - not sure if you missed it or are looking for something different. I'm actually going to order another one soon.

After tons of looking, coveting, thinking.. I did decide to order 2 coverings from Garlands of Grace. I got a plain headband and a snood. I will hopefully love the snood and be able to wear it to church, the headband for more of an every day look (but I don't cover every day). I can't wait for them to arrive!

Tznius style wrap skirt. Easy as a wink.
First, look at the website to see what they look like.
Then, buy 4 yards of 60" wide fabric. Denim/cord/linen/ your choice.
Stay away from slippery fabric.
Prewash and dry twice to ensure setting the shrinkage.
Iron fabric and then flod it into a big square.
Get out your pin box and tape measure.
Hold tape at one of the folded corners and measure down the side 17". Mark with a pin. Continue holding tape end at corner and measure 17" until you reach the other edge.
Now, measure the length of a prefered skirt you already wear.
Holding the end of the tape to the area you marked with pins, measure the length you want and pin accordingly all the way around the bottom, moving the end of the tape to correspond with the bottom.
FYI. If you are slender, you can measure the same all around the bottom. If not, make sure to add about 1 1/2" along the area that will be in back.
THis will keep the skirt from looking like you are bent over all the time.

Cut along the pins. With the extra piece of fabric, cut a length for the tie as follows. First measure the top of the skirt, then add and an extra three feet or so to the length. Mark a section 5-6 inches wide, depending on you wide you want the tie to be.
You will likely need to add sections to the long piece to reach the length you need.

Now, iron the side and bottom edges over twice and sew in place.
Take the tie, and sew the right side to the wrong side of the skirt.
At this point finish the ends of the tie as well.
Then, iron the attached edges flat. Fold and iron the unfinished edge of the tie, then fold over and iron into place along the right side of the skirt.
Top stitch in place.

To wear, place the middle of the skirt at your back and wrap the skirt around you. Tie in back.

I have fabric awaiting me, so I will take pics of the process and post them on our blog, in case there is some confusion in the process.

At one point there were directions online, but the site is no longer up.

well, after reading 14 pages of the thread, i am delurking. Liquesce, over the course of the thread i saw you go from engaged to newlywed. congrats!

i do not cover, but i am drawn and deeply interested. have been interested for a few years. my beliefs are best described as Quaker and Buddhist, nothing that requires a covering. modest dress is not something common to my friends or community. i have always loved scarves--but wear them round my neck!

for me, i like the idea of a physical reminder of a life centered on prayer. and i like the idea of modest clothes that leave me free to not think about them all day, to get my work and play done. i will be working in a classroom, with 10-12 year olds...i find myself distracted from my own lessons when my blouse is too low, honestly.

no specific questions...but hear learning, and listening inwardly...

Checking in. I just want to apologise. I know I owe some of you a draft and instructions on a snood. I've had a chest cold that knocked me for a loop. Getting better, but it's still not gone. I just wanted you to know I haven't forgotten about you

Let me know how you like the snood. DH is weired out by my mantillas.

Oh, if you're on their mailing list they have 25% off coupons periodically!

Do you have an online source for your mantillas? I usually wear a rectangular scarf tichel/bun style. I would love to get a real mantilla. I've been trying see if my grandmothers' old ones are still around but no luck so far.
