This hand stitched Bonnet was created for Historical Accuracy. No Machine stitching to give you away when you step back in time.
I fastidiously copied from the 1812 Fashion plate so that you could wear this Bonnet with confidence.
I rework, and sometimes repaint flowers to fit into the appropriate time period. Extra care with my Flowers and Trims ensure Historical Accuracy. I can't stress enough the importance of this for Re-enactors and Costumed Interpreters.
The lining is polyester instead of silk because of moral (extensive use of slave labor in the silk trade) and durability issues. Only you and I will know the difference however, as I am very careful with my choices.
(My Degree is in Fiber and Fashion Design if that makes you more comfortable with my judgement.)
The front brim is shaped with heavy caning, so don't let the kids play with it and don't sit on it.
The Coal Shuttle or Poke shape is quite interesting to wear, not unlike a horse with blinders on. While at the same time, it funnels in the sound from the direction you're looking.
See what it feels like to be fashionable in 1812.
