Description

This is the sweetest bonnet that you could put on a baby! Inspired by vintage styles, this brimmed bonnet frames the baby's face as well as keeps the sun out of her eyes. It is precious on babies as well as baby dolls! This heirloom, smocked bonnet would be beautiful with a Christening or dedication gown.

The pattern offers options for a fully smocked insert with bias band details for the more experienced seamstress or a quicker and easier to sew style with only a few rows smocked at the bonnet brim and a casing with ribbon at the back. This bonnet will complete the beautiful heirloom, smocked dresses in baby’s wardrobe! The open back with ties allows for longer wearing while showing wisps of precious baby hair. The bonnet brim can be embellished with hand or machine embroidery, or left plain.

There are a total of 4 sizes and 2 styles included in the pattern as well as a smocking graph for each size - Preemie/Doll, NB - 6mo., 1 - 2t, and 2 - 3t. The 2 styles includes a quicker an easier bonnet, unlined and with a casing closure for the back and less smocking and a more advanced style with more smocking, bias band treatments and can be either lined or not lined.

This makes a wonderful baby gift and is a precious compliment to a special outfit. With the sizes included, there's an appropriate size for all babies and toddlers! The pattern also fits and looks adorable on dolls. It is pictured on the American Girl Bitty baby (pink outfit) as well as a Lee Middleton doll (white outfit) and will fit similarly sized dolls.

The bonnet can be made in batiste, broadcloth, cotton lawn, pima cotton, silk dupioni or other similar weight fabrics.

Smocking instructions are not included. A knowledge of smocking is required in order to smock the bonnet and sewing knowledge is required to construct the bonnet. A pleater or iron on dots (Knott's dots) are needed to pleat the fabric piece that will be smocked.

This is a digital PDF pattern for sewing and smocking the bonnets. The pattern and instructions are a download and can be printed on a home printer. Nothing will be sent out via mail. The pattern will be available as a digital download from your Etsy Purchases as soon as payment has cleared.

Pattern was emailed to me as soon as my payment went through. I haven't had a chance to actually make this yet - hence only 4 stars - but I've read the instructions and feel confident that I can do this. I'm excited to do some smocking as I haven't done any in years. Thanks for the adorable bonnet pattern!
