Want to look like you just stepped out of the pages of a Jane Austen novel? Searching for just the right headgear to go with your empire gown? This soft-crowned Regency era poke bonnet is flexible, comfortable and ready to wear. 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.

This bonnet has a flat top of brocade somewhere between slate and lavender and has a soft straw-like brim in silver. The edge of the brim has a ruffled effect. The crown is trimmed with a removable bow and feather pin and decorative silver braid. Silver satin ribbons tie under the chin to complete the effect. If you want to add further embellishment, it would look especially nice when trimmed with one of my bee brooches.

This bonnet packs flat, so it is perfect for out-of-town picnics and Jane Austen conventions.

If you are interested in making your own bonnet, check out my other listings, or if you would like a custom-made bonnet in your colors and size, contact me and I will be happy to oblige.

This bonnet is size large with a medium brim.

All of my shipping prices are based on regular mail. If you need an item shipped quickly, contact me before you purchase and I will set up a reserved listing with expedited shipping.

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.
