It dawned on me this reading how the expression of 'setting one's cap' might have come into being. Could it be because if you 'set your cap' at someone, you single them out as the person you want to marry, and it was typical for only married women to wear caps?
I'm not sure why I never thought of it this way before. Am I the only one to do so?
