I love turbans, and this one looks great. I have a feeling your MIL will be asking for more of them.

Very regal! It would be nice to have some custom turbans for specific outfits.

What a wonderful DIL you are. She looks marvelous in her turban and I'm betting she's going to want different colors to match her outfits. Great job.

Red! What a daring MIL. She wears it proudly and looks beautiful. Good job Dorothy figuring out those confusing instructions.
