Welcome to A LADY BONNET BOUTIQUE!

My interest in the Regency Era of England began with the classic novels by Jane Austen. In 2006, shortly after seeing the 2005 cinema version of "Pride and Prejudice" starring Kiera Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen, I began writing fan fiction. My debut novel — Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One — was publishing in February 2009. This novel launched The Darcy Saga, my ten-volume sequel series. To learn more about my novels, visit my website at: www.SharonLathanAuthor.com

My passion for the Regency grew as I steadily researched every aspect of the period, including the garments. As a longtime member of the Jane Austen Society of North America and The Beau Monde chapter of the Romance Writers of America, I love dressing in period clothing for every event I can possibly attend. I've accumulated a bursting closet of gowns and accessories, but until recently never tried my hand at sewing anything myself. This changed in May 2018 when, on a whim, I decided to make bonnets for myself and my two daughters to wear at the Greater Louisville JASNA Region’s annual Jane Austen Festival that coming July. To my amazement, I discovered an untapped "talent" and unbeknownst enthusiasm: I LOVE making bonnets and hats!

What began as a mini-project to create three basic hats has evolved into a new passion. I am unsure how far this newfound desire will lead me, or how it will fit in with my writing, but for the present I am letting inspiration flow!

Thank you for visiting. Be sure to “favorite” my shop! Check back often to see my new headwear creations and other vintage items as I find them. Also, I have a website where all products can be purchased: www.ALadyBonnetBoutique.com

Cheers and God bless, Sharon Lathan
