This bonnet was a delight to decorate. As soon a she asked for it to be decorated, an idea popped into my head for the pansies I just couldn’t shake. It turns out they were the perfect choice. I’ll let her share the reason if she wishes. I am just so delighted I was able to do something with extra special meaning.
This is an early 50s straw with a berry double face satin ribbon by Hyman Hendler and velvet pansies. The facing is a neutral silk taffeta to set off the color of the pansies. The bavolet is a pale gold silk lined with net.
