This sweet bonnet is a recreation of a 1920’s style bonnet. The botton-on bonnet style has been popular in the south for many years. The bonnet frames the face beautifully while offering protection from the sun. The bonnet features a brim that goes completely around the head. 2 bonnet crowns are offered (circle and scalloped circle) and both are interchangeable with the brim.

The scalloped bonnet crown is especially sweet made up heirloom style and is the perfect compliment to any heirloom dress. It is perfect for portrait pictures! The round bonnet crown is excellent as a sunbonnet to wear at the beach, picnic or other outdoor functions where protection from the sun is desired.

This pattern has been drafted for both dolls from 15" - 20" as well as girl sizes through a size 8. Because the bonnet is worn on the crown of the head, the sizes are less confining, which means that the sizes overlap somewhat and that the bonnet can be worn for several years before it is outgrown.

Made from heirloom fabrics, it is sure to turn heads at weddings, Easter and any other special events. The bonnet brim or crown can be monogramed or embellished with other embroidery by machine or hand with the design of choice (embroidery designs/instructions not included). The options are limitless!

To make the heirloom style bonnet with laces, entredeux, etc. the seamstress will need to be already familiar with French machine sewing techniques.

This pattern is suitable for all levels of seamstresses and can be sewn in a couple hours or less.
