This bonnet has a gathered crown made from a rich figured brocade of silvery blue and taupe and has a soft straw-like brim in taupe. The edge of the brim has a ruffled effect. The crown is trimmed with a removable bow and feather pin and silver decorative braid. Pale blue satin ribbons and a decorative blue taffeta button on top complete the effect. If you want to add further embellishment, it would look especially nice when trimmed with one of my ribbon rose brooches.
This bonnet is size medium with a medium brim.
This bonnet packs flat, so it is perfect for out-of-town picnics and Jane Austen conventions (remember, JASNA members, it’s not too early to start thinking about Montréal in October).
