This listing is for a regency bonnet reproduced from a fashion plate dated November 1807. This bonnet would be ideal for regency re-enactment, Jane Austen or Napolionic events, Regency themed weddings and costumed events.

This bonnet is created in a lovely Aqua or Eau de Nil satin with a full gathered crown. The deep flared brim has squared edges bound with ivory satin to match the trim at the crown. The brim is made of top quality millinary buckrum and wired at the edge to keep its shape. The bonnet is decorated at either side with a spray of vintage flowers in ivory silk and organza with pearl centres. All trimmings are sewn by hand so no nasty glue used to spoil it. The bonnet fastens with ivory satin ribbon ties. The bonnet is fully lined in ivory habotai silk.

All construction seams are sewn by machine giving you the durability of a modern item but with all visible stitching inside and out being sewn by hand making this ideal for historical re-enactors.

The forth image shows the regency fashion plate that inspired this design and clearly shows the shaping of the brim used here. The last image is an origional (though sadly squashed) silk bonnet in the MET collection from the early 19th century in an identical colour pallette with the shaped brim used here.

Your bonnet will be sent to you in a strong postal box ideal for storing you bonnet for future events.
