``Look here, I have bought this bonnet. I do not think it is very pretty; but I thought I might as well buy it as not. I shall pull it to pieces as soon as I get home, and see if I can make it up any better.''
Pride and Prejudice
Jane Austen

Decorating your own bonnet (or retrimming last year's model) was a common past time in Jane Austen's day. This Large brimmed bonnet is similar in style to many you'll find in Regency fashion plates and portraits (see the last two images for sketches by Ingres) I've included one sample photo of this bonnet trimmed, and one of actress Claire Foy wearing a similar style in Andrew Davies'/Charles Dickens' "Little Dorrit". This listing is for the plain bonnet only.

The Elinor was the first style I ever created and has remained one of my most popular styles. It is created from straw braid and has a heavy gauge wire along the brim edge to help it keep it's shape.

This listing is for the plain bonnet, designed by me, as shown. If you would like a trimmed version, feel free to contact me about custom colors and trimmings. I'm always happy to try something new.
