  • A cap worn by French peasant women. In the 16th century, the bavolette was a piece of fabric folded and attached to the cap, with the folds projecting over the forehead and hanging down in the back. A 19th-century style called the curtain bonnet had a back ruffle, called a bavolet, that shaded the neck.
