  • Handmade
  • Materials: Straw Plait, Wire

This hat was inspired by the Sailor's Hat in Madame Demorest's Mirrors of Fashion 1862. It has the round dome crown and narrow flat brim, encircled with a blue silk ribbon. Placed at the side, instead of the straw anchor in the original description, I added a trio of straw leaves, made by me. This is the first hat trimmed with straw embellishments I made.

The crown of this hat is 19" around the inside; it will sit high on an average size head.

About my straw & drawn bonnets:
I use an assortment of real straw plaits including a whole straw plait, a fine Italian straw plait, and an English black straw plait. I block my hats and bonnets on original millinery blocks and hand carved blocks.

My bonnets are sewn by hand from the tip forward, with 100% cotton thread. Because they are few hand-sewn, there can be some asymmetry in each bonnet. Each bonnet is wired with 22 or 19 gauge millinery wire. The bonnet is then blocked and sized (or stiffened) with my own sizing.

I ship Priority Mail with insurance. Larger bonnets need to ship by parcel post as the boxes they safely fit in require a 'dimension charge' at the post office.

I try to keep my millinery affordable. Price changes reflect the cost of straw and other materials as they change, as well as fees.

Please know I have a feline millinery assistant in case you have allergies.

This little capote is adorable and so well made. (All of Anna’s work is amazing!) This one is ideal for an outing this month with my new (very short) hair. It will accessorize my ca 1800 clothes perfectly. The packaging and shipping were also, as always, prompt and beautifully done.

After seeing Anna recommended many times on the Civilian Civil War Closet, I had to jump when this became available! It is beautiful, and you can tell she puts lots of time into her work. I am so excited to complete it with some blue silk trim!

Absolutely Gorgeous! Anna trimmed it for me in an exquisite style, with yellow velvet pansies! In all my years as a civilian for the Civil War Era, I've not had a hat. Now I have this incredible one, and as the transaction happened over Easter, it is my "Easter 'Bonnet"!" The black and natural colors are just lovely and her work divine.
