Want to look like you just stepped out of the pages of a Jane Austen novel? Want something totally unique that you create yourself? This kit contains everything you need to make your own Regency era poke bonnet. Although it was designed with the English Regency in mind, this bonnet would also make a lovely accompaniment for an early Victorian or American Civil War costume.

Start by sizing the navy blue brim to fit your head. Then gather a piece of rich lavender brocade to make a soft crown. Add a navy blue decorative braid, bias-cut lavender taffeta around the edge, and finish it off with navy grosgrain ribbons and a removable bow and feather accent for a totally custom bonnet that you made entirely yourself. Step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, and no machine sewing and very little hand sewing is required. Add your own flowers or embellishments to make it even more unique. It would look especially nice when trimmed with one of my bee brooches.

NOTE: In order to cut shipping costs, the brim is rolled to fit in a smaller box. Please open as soon as it arrives and allow the brim a day or so to flatten out.
