SUMMER SALE! Ready-To-Decorate Poke Bonnets with gathered crowns are on sale now through Halloween! I have started making a new style of poke bonnet with a flat top, so I am discounting my previous gathered crown style by 25%. Only a few of these bonnets remain, and I am discontinuing the style (except for special orders). Ready To Wear Bonnets, Decorate-Your Own Bonnets and Gathered Crown Bonnet Kits are also on sale.

Want to look like you just stepped out of the pages of a Jane Austen novel? Searching for just the right color combination to go with your empire gown? Want to make your own unique headgear without starting from scratch? This trimming kit is designed to finish one of my Regency era Decorate-Your-Own bonnets, but you can certainly use it on other things as well. It looks nice when used to trim plain straw hats too. Although it was designed with the English Regency in mind, a bonnet decorated with this kit would also make a lovely accompaniment for an early Victorian or American Civil War costume.

Start with a piece of bias-cut satin or taffeta (because who wants to buy a whole yard of taffeta for one bias strip?) to either decorate your brim make a ruffled band for your crown. Add braided trim around the crown, and long ribbons to tie it on. Feathers, ribbons for a bow and a pin back allow you to make a removable decoration. If you want further embellishments, add silk flowers or one of my ribbon rose brooches.

Kit Contains:
Bias-cut strip for brim or ruffle
Braided trim for crown
Ribbons for ties
Ribbons and lace for bow
Pin Back

The copper trimming kit would go nicely with the gold, yellow, or brown bonnet.

Note: The last picture is an example of a Decorate-Your-Own bonnet finished with one of my Trimming Kits.

I have a PDF epattern tutorial for making your own bonnet as well.

Frequently asked questions about RoyalHouseOfWhimsy

The best way to measure your head is to go across your forehead and just above your ears. You want to measure around the largest part of the head.
I accept returns. Please contact me before sending an item back. Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value. There is a 50% restocking fee for returns on custom made items. There is a 25% restocking fee for costume items purchased during September and October and returned after Halloween.
I can ship to any country, but it is the buyer's responsibility to find out about any fees, import taxes, or regulations regarding importing (this especially applies to feathers). I do not know the laws or import fees for each county and can't be held responsible for policies set by your government.
Shipping varies by destination, with shipments to some counties taking two to three weeks to arrive. Sometimes packages are held at local post offices and customers must pick them up in person and pay an import tax. This varies by country. Sometimes your post office notifies you and sometimes they don't. It is a good idea to track the package yourself (go to the You section of Etsy, select Purchases and Reviews, and hit the Track Package button) and check with your post office when you see that it has arrived. I have no control over this and can't help if your post office holds your package or charges a fee.
Priority Mail and Express Mail (both domestic and international) include insurance. First Class Mail (both domestic and international) does not. If you are worried that your package may not arrive safely, please choose a mail option with insurance. I am not responsible for lost packages once they have been accepted by the US Postal Service.
